Before we highlight the many benefits of joining the Trusted Partner Network, it’s worth understanding who's responsible for creating it and why it was set up in the first place.
Owned and managed by the Motion Picture Association (MPA), simply put the Trusted Partner Network is a content protection initiative. It aims to prevent content leaks, breaches and hacks of their customers’ movies and TV shows prior to their intended release.
This global, industry-wide initiative seeks to protect all Film and TV content. The assessment process is designed to deliver a comprehensive report to MPA (Motion Picture Association), CDSA (Content Delivery and Security Association), and ACE (Amercian Cinema Editors) member studio content owners.
Therefore, if your clients include movie studios and television companies, it pays to take your content security seriously - how do you do that? – take your TPN assessment.
What is the Trusted Partner Network?
The Trusted Partner Network (TPN) is a global, industry-wide film and television content protection initiative. The TPN helps companies prevent leaks, breaches, and hacks of their customers’ movies and television shows prior to their intended release.
The TPN establishes a single benchmark of minimum-security for all vendors and their teams, wherever they work, and whatever their specialty. By creating a single, global directory of “trusted partner” vendors, content companies will have access to a centralised database to learn their TPN status.
To become part of the Trusted Partner Network, your company will need to meet the security benchmarks set out in ACE’s (Alliance for Creativity and Entertainment) Content Security Best Practices – Common Guidelines.
Benefits of the Trusted Partner Network:
We believe there are many benefits for taking a TPN Assessment and joining the Trusted Partner Network. Here are just a few of those:
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.
Secure your systems and prevent content leaks
Give you clients peace of mind that your systems are 100% secure and that their content is safe in their hands.
Help you promote your security preparedness
By taking the TPN assessment, you will be added to the Trusted Partner database that all MPA, CDSA and ACE members have access to. There they will be able to select the right post-production company they wish to work with.
Set yourself apart from your competitors
Completing your TPN audit and assessment isn’t easy. There are over 300 different measures your company will need to meet. You will need to ensure your company meets Physical security measures, Management System measures and Digital Security measures. Now, only the most forward thinking of businesses are part of TPN – act fast and you too can gain a competitive edge.
Enhance collaboration between yourself and content owners
Businesses who have undergone the TPN assessment process enjoy better collaboration with their clients. Content owners and post-production companies can share information more easily, making working together quicker and easier.
Empower your industry with security best practice
Would you like to work in an industry free from security leaks and content hackers? The sooner post-production companies take content security seriously, the sooner we can stop cyber-criminals and hackers from leaking our work.
Reduce the number of security assessments
Before TPN existed, each company would set their own content security processes and procedures, which left post-production companies having to complete several separate assessments. This should help reduce these.
Create competitive, market-driven security assessment pricing
Having one central content security process removes any competition.
Empower your clients with the data they need to choose the right partner
All companies who meet the TPN assessment will be uploaded onto a database. This will allow your clients to filter and search for the best partner to meet their requirements depending on the project.
