Global Task Force for Public Media

As the COVID-19 crisis continues, the role of public media has never been so important. The Global Task Force for public media have issued their first statement recognizing the essential service of public broadcasters during the pandemic:

“The year 2020 will be forever etched in our minds. No matter where we live, we share common experiences of fear, grief and the suffering that comes with uncertainty. And yet in this time of crisis, we are seeing communities come together as never before. We are discovering an even deeper respect for our health workers and other first responders, as well as for the many unsung heroes who are putting the needs of others ahead of their own, often at considerable risk.

Rarely has the role of public service media been of greater importance than it is now. That is why we, the members of the Global Task Force for public media, would like to add our salute to the essential service being provided at this time by public broadcasters around the world.”

 

NABA-TC Cybersecurity Sub-Committee publishes Best Practices in an Effective Enterprise Anti-Phishing Program

Phishing is a form of social engineering whereby threat agents attempt to deceive users or take advantage of a user’s trust, in order to steal sensitive information, or to gain illegal access to credentials, internal networks, systems, databases, or other valuable enterprise assets. The key to an effective enterprise anti-phishing program is maintaining a high degree of staff awareness and training, on a continuous basis.

The NABA-TC Cybersecurity Sub-Committee published NABA Recommendations for Best Practices in an Effective Enterprise Anti-Phishing Program.

NABA-TC Cybersecurity Sub-Committee Publishes Two New Documents on Cloud Security

The use of cloud is now ubiquitous in the broadcasting/media industries. Cloud services offer the broadcaster the ability to flexibly spin up and down additional storage and compute capacity whenever
required.

As cloud clients, broadcasters should understand the controls in place to protect broadcasters’data. It is important to assess both broadcasters’ internal level of assurance, and the level of assurance offered by the cloud service providers.

The NABA-TC Cybersecurity Sub-Committee has published two new documents on Cloud Security:
