Convergent Risks Expands U.S. Office, Offers Additional Services (HITS)

Risk assessment and compliance services firm Convergent Risks has recently expanded its U.S. offices in Sherman Oaks, Calif. to both support new services and offer more space for security training and engineering support around Trusted Partner Network (TPN) security assessments.

Convergent Risks’ offices are located near the offices of the Motion Picture Association (MPA), which along with the Content Delivery & Security Association (CDSA) operates TPN as a joint venture.

“Our global teams of security assessors have completed over 400 TPN assessments globally with many more in the pipeline and we find that offering training to vendors to help prepare for assessments provides real benefit to the M&E community. The new office also enables us to expand our engineering and consultancy teams in supporting production security services and TPN remediation,” said Janice Pearson, VP of global content protection for Convergent Risks.

“As the industry progresses towards cloud workflows, knowledge-sharing and collaboration with technical experts and technology vendors is the key to integrating new technologies securely and effectively. We believe these events will not only support our partners and clients but also provide connections and foster community.”
