It wasn’t long ago that cybersecurity was a concern relegated to IT departments; something the rest of us rarely thought about. Today, cybersecurity is top of mind for business leaders, and IT regularly educates the whole company on threats and security hygiene.
According to Gartner, worldwide information security spending reached $86.4 billion in 2017. However, it’s not just about spending on security. “As seen in the recent spate of global security incidents, doing the basics right has never been more important,” said Sid Deshpande, principal research analyst at Gartner.
For media companies, getting the basics right across their entire content supply chain seems like an impossible task. And it is, for any one company. The interconnected nature of media production and distribution means that security has to be a community effort.
