More and more businesses are becoming the targets of cyber security breaches of all kinds, from compromised information and financial fraud to data that is held hostage until a ransom is paid.
It’s a scary prospect and agriculture as a sector is more at risk than most. It’s an industry with many independent businesses, which means that although some cyber security practices are in place, they are uneven and not as strong as they could be. And except for very large operations, most family farm businesses do not have a family or staff member with cyber security expertise.
A key barrier to cyber security action on the farm is not knowing where or how to start – and that’s where the Ontario Federation of Agriculture can help.
In this Webinar, OFA General Manager Cathy Lennon hosted a one hour online lunch and learn session where she gave a high level overview – in easy to understand, low jargon language – of the key risks, and how to get started with managing them on your farm.
