CDSA Launches Content Protection Month with Bob Gold & Associates
This coordinated industry-wide initiative is designed to raise awareness across all business units and service provider partners to educate and enculturate everyone who is part of content creation to personally embrace content protection and security. The campaign will emphasize the industry's need to educate, empower and engage at all levels.
"In this new Platinum Age of Production, the entertainment industry is creating more content than ever, resulting in a huge influx of people who touch content in various forms and at various times during its creation and distribution across all formats," said Guy Finley, Executive Director, CDSA. "Content security awareness is at the forefront of this critical transformation, whether on-set or in the office, and BG&A is the right agency to tell our story."
Held in conjunction with National Cybersecurity Month individual events are being planned and hosted by CDSA Board member companies to increase synergy among their various internal departments, brands and partners. CDSA member companies, including NBCUniversal, Amazon Studios, Paramount Pictures, Warner Brothers and Lionsgate, will participate in their own unique "Content Protection Day" tailored to meet their specific goals, corporate culture and appetite for scale and scope of their event.
CDSA is providing the tools and template to help raise awareness and make it everyone's job at every level to safeguard content, inspire staff to serve as ambassadors and empower evangelists to promote content protection around the world.
"We have enormous respect for CDSA. Security and content protection is everyone's job and we hope to create a campaign that can be embraced throughout this incredible creative community," said Bob Gold, President & CEO of BG&A.
