Cybersecurity for Broadcast & Media

Secure360: a cybersecurity improvement framework for broadcast and media companies

What is Secure360?

Broadcasters and media companies are becoming increasingly targeted by hackers who can disrupt business, steal assets, interrupt live playout and hold organisations to ransom.

Secure360 is a broadcaster specific framework designed to evaluate the cybersecurity defences of your organisation and answer the following questions:

  • How do I know what the cyber threats are to my business?
  • Where are the security weaknesses in my organisation?
  • What security capabilities should I invest in?

We provide tools and services to address any issues raised by the evaluation to ensure your organisation is resilient both now and in the future.

Secure360 can be standalone, one of the steps associated with Discover360, or a component of Excel360.

How does Secure360 protect my organisation?

Secure360 will identify cybersecurity risk and weakness in your organisation’s security capability. We will interview key staff in your organisation and review your current security defences; from that, we will align your current security capability against our Secure360 security framework.

This framework will show how you are matched against peer organisations and also show key weaknesses in your defence; from this, you will be able to:

  • Identify key risks from cyber weaknesses
  • Prioritise remediation of current weaknesses
  • Select the right investment strategy for future cyber-defences

Broadcasters and service providers: Are you ready for the next unexpected event?

In a recent survey on global risk management by Aon Risk Solutions the greatest risk identified by company executives was ‘damage to brand’, whilst the seventh greatest risk was a ‘business interruption’. It struck me that for broadcasters and service providers these risks were probably one in the same thing.
