Cyber Challenges for the Entertainment Sector
The entertainment sector encompasses everything from a movie theater to a musician’s music. Today’s broadcast media production companies are facing an environment of enhanced formats, evolving platforms, faster processor speeds, and OTT delivery that allows for video to be watched on pretty much any device. These exponential technology advances have had a tremendous impact on the media industry. With all of this innovative technology, comes those who would like to exploit it. Think the Sony Entertainment breach. A recent ScreenMedia report found that 28% of media organizations admit to having experienced a cyber attack of some type or another. Not only are the company’s/artist’s webpages being attacked and defaced, but there are PoS intrusions, extortion cases, insider threat actors, web-app attacks that compromise credentials and manipulate funds, and exploitation of backdoor channels vulnerable to malware.
