Ways to Protect Film and TV Productions from Cyber Threats:

The motion picture and film industry, a multi-billion dollar business, relies heavily on digital technology for various processes from scriptwriting to distribution. With numerous professionals collaborating on each project, often remotely, the industry faces cybersecurity vulnerabilities alongside technological advancements.

Organisations hosting valuable content are prime targets for cyberattacks such as data breaches and ransomware. As media handling methods evolve and threats proliferate, vigilance becomes paramount.

To combat these challenges, the Production Security Working Group (PSWG), comprising production, technology, legal, and security experts, developed industry-wide security standards under the CDSA. These guidelines assist producers and production teams in securing both physical and virtual assets, offering best practices and implementation guidance tailored to unique circumstances.
