Content Protection & Security Standard – Protecting Media & Intellectual Property

The Content Delivery and Security Association (CDSA) publishes standards to secure media assets across all stages of the supply chain. The CDSA Content Protection and Security (CPS) standard outlines explicit security testing requirements for organizations handling media and intellectual property.

The CDSA is an international content protection association.

Its global membership includes companies involved in every facet along the digital and physical media supply chain.

  • CF 5.23 sets out the requirements necessary for vulnerability management including anti-virus protection, security updates (patches) system and data backups and security testing. Threats to IT systems such as malware or internal vulnerability exploitation can be mitigated by applying a regime of good housekeeping. If not protected and updated, systems can become unstable, causing loss of data. Failure to back data up can make this loss permanent and compromise client assets.
  • CF 5.23.10 sets out requirements for participants to provide evidence of vulnerability assessments appropriate to the documented risk assessment.
