Convergent Risks is the leading provider of TPN security assessments and threat assessment testing. Its mission is to help safeguard media and entertainment clients against calculated security risks and to best prepare them to respond to the unforeseen in case of a particular threat or actual security event.

"Our collaboration with OOONA on its revamped educational platform is a sensible avenue to provide comprehensive training on security threats at a global scale. We believe this initiative will provide a common set of security training best practices that apply to all full-time staff and freelancers working in the M&E sector, meeting the needs of content owners and addressing common studio requirements."
