Film and television production needs digital protection at every one of its unique stages: script development, writer rooms, creative and client meetings, pre-production, physical production, post-production, editing, sound mixing, marketing, and so on. The everyday processes, policies, and standards implemented by production offices and studios, ranging from highly-sensitive emails, websites, physical and cloud server, and tracking grids, require growing levels of security. While traditional security guidelines have shaped the industry for years, their complexity can prove complicated, overwhelming, and frustrating, leading to the generation of issues that may be damaging but inherently avoidable.
With over two decades of cybersecurity experience in entertainment, we provide security consultancy services through clearly-defined steps: Assessment, Analysis, Action. By doing so, we're not only focused on digital analysis and troubleshooting, but also in crafting open and fluid relationships with every one of our clients.
Our assessment methodology includes a review of client-provided documentation that will characterize the environment by policies and processes, network topology and application support. Through remote and onsite review, results will be inputted via an online questionnaire that is digitally submitted for evaluation, report compilation, and submission to our client.
Prior to final report processing, we and our clients will review validated documentation, discuss alternative remediation options to eliminate gaps identified, and clear up any additional concerns and queries. Data-driven decision making is at the heart of our gap assessment and action processes.
