The World Broadcasting Unions (WBU) has issued its first recommendations on cyber security for media vendors' systems, software and services.
They have been based on original work by the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and North American Broadcasting Association (NABA).
WBU says the recommendations are "intended to create a dialogue with media vendors with the goal of their achieving more consistent and effective compliance with cyber security best practices."
The WBU recommends that its union members, and media companies in general:
- Apply the cyber security recommendations when planning and designing their systems, software and services
- Require media vendors to state their degree of compliance with the cyber security recommendations when responding to requests for information (RFIs), requests for proposals (RFPs) and requests for quotations (RFQs)
- Define their own minimum risk acceptance level on the basis of the recommendations
The full document containing all of the recommendations can be found at the WBU's website.
