Organisations in the broadcasting, entertainment, publishing, creative and advertising sectors hold vast quantities of highly valuable information such as recordings, manuscripts, and research. Those that fail to implement appropriate security measures in a fast-evolving digital landscape risk leaving this data exposed to theft and piracy.
Many media companies are expected to maintain an ‘always on’ presence, creating and sharing content on a continuous basis, often with partners across the distribution chain. The disruption caused by cyber-attacks can therefore inflict significant financial, operational and reputational damage.
Common cyber security challenges in the media sector include:
• Protecting intellectual property
• Defending rapidly evolving infrastructures against targeted attacks
• Securing content management systems
• Preventing state or political interference
• Achieving compliance with data protection standards
Questions media companies should be asking about their cyber security:
Redscan’s comprehensive range of cyber security services can help organisations in the media sector to protect data to the highest standards, in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA). All organisations that handle personal data, such as customer and employee information, must ensure that robust data security standards and breach reporting procedures are in place, or risk a large fine in the event of an incident.
