Committed To Security
The DPP Committed to Security programme allows all production and broadcast suppliers to demonstrate their commitment to working towards and adhering to cyber security best practice.
Your content is extremely valuable, so it’s critical that every link in the media supply chain meets standards of security best practice. The industry as a whole must focus on continual improvement so that buyers of technology, services and facilities can be assured that suppliers are committed to keeping content secure. That’s why we created the DPP Committed to Security Programme.
The programme consists of a self-assessment questionnaire, which is then reviewed by Convergent Risks, a global specialist security consultancy and DPP member. The programme is available to all suppliers, including technology vendors, service providers, facilities, and more.
It’s very difficult to take co-ordinated action on such a difficult problem as cybersecurity. But the DPP’s Committed to Security Programme is a way for us to move forward together.

How do I take part?
The DPP Committed to Security Programme is free to DPP members. There is an administration fee for non-members, of £1,500 per licensed mark per annum.
Through the Sanctum Hub portal a self-assessment questionnaire is provided for each of the two marks (broadcast and production). You can access the portal by registering to participate. The terms and conditions of the programme are available to download. When you’re ready to proceed, just complete the online application form to receive your invite to the portal.
Upon successful completion of the self-assessment questionnaire you will be awarded a license to use Committed to Security Marks.
From Jun 2020, fully compliant questionnaires will now be awarded a license for 2 years. Partially compliant questionnaires will be awarded a license for 1 year.
We have been impressed with the efficiency and thoroughness of the DPP’s Committed to Security Programme. The review process was robust and professional, and also focused our attention on areas where we could improve our security governance.

Participation in this Programme is intended to help reduce the likelihood of content loss or theft. However, no amount of best practice or adherence to standards will eliminate all of the risks. The DPP is not responsible for the individual organisation’s implementation of the Committed to Security programme, and cannot be held accountable should a breach occur.
