Content Security Risk Management Programs

  • Copyright & Licensing Verification (CLV) – Developed at the request of content owners and media manufacturers to standardize and verify processes used to prevent piracy through unauthorized manufacturing and distribution of products.
  • Music Recording Studio Security (MRSS) – Developed by operational and technical specialists within the recording industry, the objective of the MRSS Best Practices is to establish a set of effective security guidelines that can measure how a recording studio or individual involved in the recording studio process will secure and protect physical and digital media assets.
