The Trusted Partner Network (TPN) is upgrading its services that assess content security safeguards of producers and their suppliers.
The TPN, which is owned by the Motion Picture Association (MPA), will now measure software and cloud security, as well as physical location and remote workplaces.
“With the launch of its enhanced programme, TPN is taking a crucial step toward ensuring the security of all content produced by our members,” said Karyn Temple, senior executive vice president and global general counsel of the MPA. “Content security is a top priority of the MPA, TPN and all of our member studios, whose ability to produce the films and TV shows audiences love depends on our ability to protect and secure that content.”
The organisation’s new platform, TPN+, has been custom-built for member companies to manage and communicate content security status, including non-TPN security certificates such as ISO and Soc2, as well as complete TPN questionnaires and assessments based on the MPA Content Security Best Practices and guidelines.
The TPN+ platform provides standardisation, expanded functionality, greater flexibility, and multi-layered transparency of security status to global content owners, said the organisation. The new platform unlocks self-serve functionality for service providers to communicate their content security status in a centralised and accelerated manner, resulting in enhanced visibility to content owners, overall time savings, and a reduction in duplicative assessment efforts, it added.
TPN has also launched a new membership model, aimed at encouraging participation from all global stakeholders, ranging from individual contributors to large-scale pre- and post production companies, software application providers, and all content owners.
