Following the inadvertent leak of several IFPI and RIAA reports this week and our subsequent articles, today we wind up with perhaps the most ironic of the series. It covers a presentation by the IFPI’s head of anti-piracy operations to industry insiders on how to prevent leaks. It explains how individuals gain access to pre-release music, how to set up honey-traps to ensnare them, and also hints at why the UK’s Serious Organized Crime Agency targeted the RnBXclusive blog earlier this year.
It seems appropriate that we should augment this anti-leaking advice from IFPI with some security guidance of our own.
In order to prevent reports on global anti-piracy strategy, offline vs online swapping, and another on the ineffectiveness of SOPA leaking out in public, please ensure that your Intranet doesn’t have a public-facing Internet webpage, even if it is only for a few minutes.
