CDSA Releases Updated Version of its Content Protection Security Standard, Making Ongoing Improvements to its International Certification Program

NEW YORK — The Content Delivery & Security Association (CDSA), the international association advocating the secure and responsible delivery and storage of entertainment, software, and information media, announced today the release of an updated version of its Content Protection and Security (CPS) Certification Standard.

“The new Standard provides a more consistent approach and enhanced security processes. Importantly, the accompanying guidance documentation now features a detailed gap analysis between our Standard and the ISO 27001/2 and the MPAA Best Practices, which streamlines the certification workflow for companies undergoing multiple audits and provides a better understanding of our program to the industry as a whole.” said CDSA’s Worldwide Director of Anti-Piracy Peter Wallace.

CDSA’s CPS standard enables media and entertainment service providers of any size or scope to minimize risks associated with handling, storing, and delivering both physical and digital entertainment media. CDSA’s unique model works in partnership with content holders and their service provider partners to provide regular updates and improvements based on industry review and feedback.

The Content Protection & Security (CPS) Standard has been in widespread use for three years and is now an integral part of the security processes in over100 sites worldwide. Since being published, it has been successfully implemented in a range of physical and digital supply-chain companies including replication/distribution, post-production, digital cinema, e-Commerce, and cloud computing services.
