Media Cyber Security

Helps Members to build and exchange knownledge of cybersecurity threats to their organizations.

This group is open to the CISO's of EBU Members.

Bringing more IT technology into the broadcasting domain has created new opportunities for media production and distribution, but it has also opened broadcast companies to new security threats. Media companies are increasingly targeted in massive security attacks. Each broadcaster, once targetted , will develop counter measures, but the sensitivity of such issues means other broadcasters fail to benefit from each other’s experiences.

The following broadcasters are already actively participating in the group : BBC, FT, NPO, ORF, RTE, RTBF, RAI, SSR, SVT, RTVE, TV2, VRT, WDR, YLE, ZDF

If you come from one of the above broadcasters, please refer to your security officer for any input to the group.

If your organisation is not yet represented and you are an authoritative security personnel such as Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) you may join this group, otherwise please join the Media Security Forum

EBU Strategic Programme on Media Cyber Security

The topic of Media Cyber Security is part of the EBU's Strategic Programme on Media Cyber Security.

Main activities:

  • Dedicated to security experts from EBU Members, MCS raises awareness of the changes and increasing information security risks to senior management boards, and exchanges information on general media and broadcasting security threats. It also provides a platform for exchange of information on security incidents and information security related experiences among the Members of the group (e.g. phishing campaigns, attacks in newsroom environments, targeted malware attacks, etc.).
  • The group also exchanges details of lessons learned from information security incidents, projects, internal procedures and best practices executed inside EBU members (technical, training, etc.) and defines for the long term, information security best practices for broadcast companies.
