Cybercrime is increasing, workflows are busier and the risk of leaks and piracy is much higher. Balancing risk vs safety is the challenge but the time for optional security is over and a pro-active approach is urgently needed. Accommodating procedural changes in busy workflows can be unwelcome. Can making security a budgeted line item on each production help ensure content is always protected?  Get security wrong and you risk your reputation, your profits and your team.
