We feel your pain

As media and entertainment networks become increasingly intricate and interconnected, potential consequences of successful cyberattacks escalate, encompassing disruptions to content delivery, breaches of sensitive media assets, and even the compromise of user information, with the potential for widespread disruption of both news and entertainment services and the potential loss of advertising revenue. Media and entertainment networks must manage a high volume of content traffic while safeguarding the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of valuable media assets.

The extensive connectivity of media and entertainment networks, content distribution, and online streaming services has made this vertical a prime target for malicious actors seeking to exploit security vulnerabilities. The proliferation of streaming platforms, advancements in content delivery technologies, and the growing interconnectedness of media ecosystems have significantly expanded the attack surface, providing more avenues for potential security breaches.

Vast interconnected media networks, critical content distribution infrastructure, and valuable media assets are attractive targets for cyber attacks. The persistent threat of such can disrupt essential media services and content distribution networks, as well as compromise the privacy of user data.

Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs), Chief Information Officers (CIOs), and their IT Security and Operations teams in the media and entertainment industry require a comprehensive approach that involves risk assessment, robust cybersecurity measures, adherence to regulatory compliance, training, and collaboration to proactively address these challenges.

"Security and risk management leaders continue to be asked to do more with less — facing more demand for service, fast-changing threat landscapes and insufficient technical talent."
