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 quality assurance expert and DPP member, Eurofins Digital Testing. 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.
