CJAZ helps Forever Audio achieve exceptional cyber security
The TPN (Trusted Partner Network) is a joint venture between two major entertainment industry associations, the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) and the Content Delivery & Security Association (CDSA), worldwide leaders in third party entertainment industry assessments.
The TPN is backed by the biggest film studios and content creators in the world, such as Disney and Netflix and the program helps companies like Forever Audio prevent leaks, breaches, and hacks of their members' movies and television shows prior to their intended release, and seeks to raise security awareness, preparedness, and capabilities within the film audio industry. Dealing with pre-released films and material it is vital that the company is not vulnerable to leaks or cyber-attacks. Although there has always been standards and protocol in the past, having an independent organisation run and regulate this operation, means that the strictest parameters can be set and rigorously checked.
The audit covered almost 300 separate checks from data IO, network and IT security, to management processes, training, culture, HR and building security. It's a huge achievement - a year in the making - and in completing the process, Forever Audio joins an elite group of vendors working with the worlds leading creative companies.
The TPN Assessment took 12 months to complete from initial audit and strategic planning to actually delivering the changes needed to comply with the TPN high-security standards.
CJAZ Consulting helped to fulfill all of the IT assessments and checks around data IO, network and IT security of which there were about 100.
Co-Founder, Seb Juviler, had this to say about working with CJAZ during the TPN Assessment project.
"The independent assessors from TPN were extremely impressed by the knowledge and expertise CJAZ Consulting had. They found it hard to believe that CJAZ didn't work in the film and audio industry their working knowledge was so great. The planning, organisation, and flexibility of working around a busy studio was absolutely fantastic and is what made our assessment possible, we can't praise Nick and his team highly enough."
Having successfully passed the TPN rigorous compliance criteria and now a bonified member of this prestigious network has meant that Forever Audio can now do business with world-renowned film industry companies. This, in turn, we hope will lead to many more successful audio projects and substantial growth for the company.

The CJAZ Team's flexibility, knowledge and experience wowed the TPN assessors and reflected brilliantly on our company. Basically making them happy, made us very happy indeed!
I can't praise Nick and his team highly enough and I would recommend his services without hesitation."
