The MRSS program has been jointly developed by operational and technical specialists within the recording industry. The objective of the Music Recording Studio Security Program (MRSS) Best Practices are to establish a set of effective security controls that can measure how a Recording Studio or individual involved in the recording studio process will secure and protect physical and digital media assets. In order to mitigate the risk and reduce the impact of copyright infringement as a result of leaked content, focus has been placed on the access to and handling of physical and logical media assets.
According to the nature of operations a successful assessment against the relevant requirements will result in a site and/or an individual achieving approved site or provider status.
The programs objectives are to identify, assess, manage and minimize risks to an acceptable level, thereby ensuring the continued integrity of intellectual property, confidentiality and media asset security.
