DPP announces initial list of security-accredited tech and post firms
The DPP has revealed a list of 20+ companies that have been accredited with its ‘Committed To Security’ mark, which is intended to demonstrate their “commitment to security best practice.”
The Committed To Security programme was launched in October last year, with the aim to offer a common framework to show how companies are addressing security issues.
The mark is free for qualifying DPP Members, and non-members can apply for the mark for an annual payment of £1,500.
“The rapid uptake of companies applying for the Committed To Security mark confirms the need for a security accreditation that works across the whole supply chain,” believes DPP managing director Mark Harrison. “Our first batch of compliant companies is extraordinarily diverse in size and activities.”
Paul Clennell, chief technology officer at dock10, added: “We work for national and international broadcasters and content producers who are under increasing threat of cyber attack.The DPP’s initiative distilled the really key criteria for cybersecurity into meaningful checklists.”
The companies awarded the Committed To Security mark to date are:
• Base Media Cloud
• Deluxe Entertainment
• The Farm Group
• Marshall Info Tech
• Perform Group
• Prime Focus Technologies
• Qvest Media
• Sundog Media Toolkit
• WCP Media Services
