The DPP’s 10 Things You Need To Know Guide is aimed at anyone who wants to understand how to reduce the risk of being harmed by a cyber threat, by protecting themselves or their business.
Until recently the media industry has escaped relatively unscathed: hackers have tended to attack financial institutions or governments. But that’s starting to change. Some media organisations now experience several cyber attacks daily.
In the past, those who wished to cause damage to broadcasters had to infiltrate their buildings and studios to disrupt output. Today it can be as simple as downloading and running some freely available malicious computer scripts. And it isn’t only broadcasters who are at risk. Any media company or organisation that uses connected systems – or buys services from other companies that do – can become victims of an attack.
From knowing and understanding those that pose a threat to your content through to using the correct security tools, this guide provides crucial tips to take care in an online world full of fantastic opportunity.
