DPP opens Committed to Security Programme to all

The DPP has extended its Committed to Security Programme to the whole media industry – including companies which are not Members of the DPP. The Programme was announced at IBC 2017 after the DPP had piloted its new Production and Broadcast Security Checklists with a selected number of Member companies. Today the Programme has been made available to all suppliers.

“DPP Members wanted a means of demonstrating that they are following security best practice, so we worked with them to develop a Programme that does just that,” says DPP Managing Director Mark Harrison. “We’re now opening that Programme more widely – and I hope the proliferation of the DPP security mark will become evidence of just how seriously our industry now takes security.”

Companies can apply to take part in the DPP Committed to Security Programme here. On successful completion of one, or both, of the Security Checklists, they will be awarded the appropriate DPP mark.

The license to hold and publicise the DPP Committed to Security mark is renewable on an annual basis. DPP Members can join the programme free of charge, as a Member benefit; non Members can join at a license fee of £1500 p.a. for each checklist.

Ten companies worked with the DPP in the development phase of the Programme and became early adopters of the mark. Those companies were Arqiva, Base Media Cloud, Dropbox, The Farm Group, Imagen, Marshall Info Tech, Microsoft, Qvest Media, Telestream, and TVT. A further 15 companies have already expressed an interest in joining the Programme, ahead of today’s full launch.

The DPP will continue its role as a leader in promoting security best practice, with a new report Who’s Winning the Cyber War?, enabled by DPP Member CenturyLink, to be published early next month. The report will feature views and insights from more than a dozen industry experts.
