TPN - information security for the audio-video sector
TPN (Trusted Partner Network) is an international standard for the audio-video industry, defining the conditions for maintaining the required level of confidentiality when exchanging information with partners.
The platform has been developed by the US intellectual property organizations MPAA and CDSA (Motion Picture Association of America and Content Delivery & Security Association) and includes a directory of information security issues.
The foundation of the TPN evaluation system and MPAA guidelines and good practices are the global standards like Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP), Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), PCI Data Security Standard, NIST 800-53, SANS Critical Security Controls and ISO/IEC 27001 and ISO/IEC 27002, which define the framework for a comprehensive Information Security Management System.
An organization that has implemented the requirements described in the document “MPAA Content Security Program CONTENT SECURITY BEST PRACTICES APPLICATION AND CLOUD/DISTRIBUTED ENVIRONMENT SECURITY GUIDELINES” and will perform an audit – by making its results available to partners it confirms its credibility and in most cases avoids additional audits before and during the cooperation. TPN compliance is expected by the largest audio-video corporations cooperating with MPAA and CDSA.
TPN can be implemented either as a stand-alone implementation or as part of an implementation of an information security management system compliant with ISO 27001.
