  • How frequent are the TPN assessments?
    Due to the dynamic nature of the content security landscape, and the ongoing development and refinement of security controls, TPN assessments renew annually.
  • Is the TPN international, and if so, where does the TPN perform assessments?
    The TPN plans to serve the international community with assessors available to address facilities in most geographic regions of the world. Assessors will visit your site to carry out the required assessment.
  • Who are the TPN assessors?
    Individual assessors (not audit firms) will undergo a strict review and approval process as to their expertise in securing pre-release, entertainment content. Vendors will hire a Qualified Assessor from the TPN database and will schedule their assessment and manage the process via the secure online platform.
  • What's included in your service?
    We implement a combination of infrastructure, network and software solutions that combine to offer a complete TPN Ready Service. Our Zero Trust approach to information technology means no user, web traffic, application or device is trusted by default. To protect our clients content, we use the following solutions: Content Backup Anti-Virus MFA (Multifactor Authentication) RBI (Remote Browser Isolation) Firewall/Router Web filtering Monitoring Spam simulation Logging
  • What do I get for my assessment fee?
    Your assessment fee gets your facility reviewed by a TPN Qualified Assessor of your choosing, a thorough assessment report with suggested remediations and improvements, and visibility in the vendor roster within the TPN Platform. Additionally, once your assessment has been completed through the TPN, we follow up on remediation items and update your facility data. We also provide an annual assessment certificate and the TPN logo to display to acknowledge participation. TPN will work with you to keep your status current through annual assessments and will provide technology alerts regarding possible vulnerabilities within in your own systems.
  • Who gets to see my TPN Assessment Report?
    A TPN Assessment Report will be visible to content owners that are a part of the TPN, as well as our internal quality assurance experts. No other vendors, competitors or otherwise, will be able to see your assessments or any information contained within. Additionally, if you funded your TPN facility assessment you may share your TPN Assessment Report with anyone you wish.
  • Why should I consider a TPN assessment?
    The TPN has been developed to help the industry improve content security, avoid duplicating assessments, and provide content owners with a unified platform for recognising levels of conformance to the MPA’s content security best practices.
  • Does the TPN assessment substitute for ISO or other standards bodies?
    The TPN assessment and credential is designed to be the benchmark for the film and television industry’s handling of content across all phases of the supply chain. It is based on the widely recognized MPA content security best practices. The TPN assessment is not a substitute for ISO or other standards bodies not specific to our industry.
  • Does the TPN certify my facility / operation?
    Completing an annual TPN assessment allows you to display the TPN logo and assessment certificate indicating your facility or operation has been reviewed by a TPN Qualified Assessor. The TPN logo is recognised by many content holders but is not a “certification.” Individual business decisions will always be made by your customers based on their needs.
  • If I have multiple facilities or locations how do I get assessed?
    Each facility is considered a separate operation for the purposes of an assessment. Please complete the general questions for the locations you wish to have evaluated on the TPN Platform and individual assessments can be arranged.
  • Who should join the TPN?
    Joining the TPN is voluntary; however, every content creator – large and small – that believes that security is a core business principle of their organisation should join the TPN.
  • Will content owners still be conducting their own assessments?
    The TPN is expected to greatly reduce the number of content owner-initiated and funded assessments. Content owner assessments will continue on an “as-needed” basis.
  • Who recognises the TPN logo / assessment?
    The major Hollywood motion picture studios and many others in the industry participated in the development of this program.
  • How do I prepare for an assessment?
    There are a variety of ways to prepare for an assessment. Downloading a free copy of the MPA content security best practices is a great way to start. If you aren’t sure about how to implement controls, or need other assistance, there are also TPN assessors that may be able to help you with consultative work. Please remember that if you select a TPN assessor to aid in either preparation or remediation work, that assessor cannot be the same person providing your TPN assessment.
  • Do I have to have a TPN assessment to do business with a content creator?
    No. Joining the TPN is voluntary. Individual content creators can always decide who to do business with depending on the type of project and their own risk management strategies. The TPN program demonstrates to content holders that a vendor facility takes content security seriously and ensures its protection.
  • How do I get a TPN assessment?
    Participating in the TPN is voluntary and very straight forward. Simply follow the steps on the website and enter your information to begin the process. Through the TPN Platform you will receive all the notifications and information necessary to arrange your initial assessment.
  • What are the benefits of joining the TPN program?
    Secure your systems and prevent content leaks. Help you promote your security preparedness. Set yourself apart from your competitors. Enhance collaboration between yourself and content owners. Empower your industry with security best practice. Reduce the number of security assessments. Create competitive, market-driven security assessment pricing. Empower your clients with the data they need to choose the right partner.
  • Who pays for the TPN assessment?
    Assessment fees are underwritten by the vendor. Assessment reports are shared within the TPN platform and can also be shared with customers outside the TPN at the vendor’s discretion. Content owners may also opt to pay for individual TPN assessments.
  • How does a vendor get their information published in the TPN directory?
    Once enrolled in the TPN Platform, the vendor(s) will have their company information, along with any authorised supporting assessment materials, published in the TPN vendor directory.
  • What types of facilities are assessed?
    Currently, the TPN is available to provide assessments of most production, post-production, and distribution operations throughout the entertainment supply chain. Your facility’s specific services will be determined and addressed during the TPN assessment process.
  • How much does a TPN assessment cost?
    The cost of an assessment is negotiated, on a case-by-case basis, between the TPN Qualified Assessor and the vendor making the assessment request. The TPN has no control of the pricing models of individual assessors and/or their firms.
  • Can I “fail” a TPN assessment?
    The TPN assessment does not provide a “pass/fail” grade, certification, or rating. It provides an assessment of a facility’s security preparedness for conformance with the MPA content security best practices. If an assessment indicates non-conformance with a control or practice, any necessary remediation may be conducted by a separate but similarly approved TPN assessor. The vendor may also provide evidence of their own remediation to the TPN. The TPN also has a formal review and submission process for any assessment disputes. Assessors will be regularly measured and evaluated through the TPN Qualified Assessor Program.
