Media and Entertainment Industry to Leverage a Tech-enabled Security Landscape

Media Entertainment Tech Outlook | Wednesday, July 31, 2019

Cybersecurity being quintessential, media and entertainment companies are improving ways to avoid and detect cyber infringements by employing technology, strengthening the cybersecurity ecosystem. 

FERMONT, CA: Media and entertainment companies are particularly susceptible to cybercrime. High-profile products and complicated production procedures, combined with the comprehensive use of outside suppliers by the media and entertainment industry, provide more possibilities for cybercriminals to attack. Content is the most fundamental asset, and the sector prioritizes data security as data theft harms the potential future.

Protecting intellectual property (IP) from unauthorized access may be a matter of company imperative. The entertainment and media business rulers are sometimes uncertain where to concentrate their attempts in the face of this scenario. The key is that all board members should function in a coordinated manner to recognize the exposure and prospective effects to their business model from the changing, targeted threats, taking into consideration their opponents' profound motivations and capacities.

Elevating the position of data safety in the organization is essential; it is an issue that demands a strategic approach to the application and implementation of technology. For C-suite managers, cybersecurity should be as much a problem as it is for the IT team. It is the business of staff, contractors, third-party suppliers, and other ecosystem partners— all of whom should at least have a fundamental knowledge of how the business protects, detects, and reacts to manual and data-driven cyber-attacks.

Corporations need to determine critical data assets to provide improved security. This involves knowing not only the basic details of the assets but also its accessibility picture. If these assets are transmitted to third parties, then, companies bear the responsibility of assuring data safety.

The industry requires to be able to identify and react to safety events in addition to a focus on avoidance. Also, while extensive digital transformation has opened up fresh opportunities for businesses, it has achieved the same for cyber attackers as well. In turn, companies should explore the potential of digitalization in order to enhance their capacity to safeguard content and detect attacks.
