Hacking in Hollywood: Why the Industry Needs to Shore Up Security

"When it comes to fighting cyber crimes in Hollywood, it’s a case of pay now or pay later. Matwyshyn said the entertainment industry is a prime target for hackers because the stakes are high, and those who work in the industry may not be paying close attention to internet security practices. It’s relatively easy to send a “phishing” email to a studio executive, advising them to click on a link. And just like that, hackers are in.

“We certainly do seem to have a series of these kinds of breaches of entertainment companies, and it does raise the question for me with respect to their internal security processes and whether they’ve in engaged with robust audits by third parties to help them find the gaps in their own security,” Matwyshyn said."
