DPP partners with Convergent Risks for its Committed to Security Program
Convergent Risks and the DPP, the media industry’s business network, have announced the launch of a new partnership to enhance and grow the DPP Committed to Security program. The program allows production and broadcast suppliers to demonstrate their commitment to working towards, and adhering to, cyber security best practice.
The program will now be made available through Convergent’s Sanctum web portal, which provides an interactive user experience to access security best practices and complete the self-assessment questionnaire. Responses will be reviewed by Convergent, a global specialist security consultancy and DPP member. The program is available to all suppliers, including technology vendors, service providers, facilities, and more.
Chris Johnson, CEO of Convergent commented: “We are delighted to be working with the DPP on this important industry initiative. The Sanctum portal will make the user experience process easier for the existing participants, while also providing businesses with additional security awareness, guidance and on specific best practices for cloud environments, SaaS applications and threat testing.”
“A huge range of companies have already taken part in the Committed to Security Programme, and it continues to grow,” said Rowan de Pomerai, DPP CTO. “It’s critical that every link in the media supply chain meets required standards of security best practice, and the Programme provides a way for buyers of technology, services and facilities, to gain assurance that suppliers are committed to keeping content secure.”
