Food & Beverage

Evaluate Threats and Establish a Mitigation Strategy

Despite an engrained safety-centric culture, the lack of enforced security policies, staff training, updated systems, and secure remote access make the food and beverage industry as susceptible to cyberattacks as other verticals. While data theft is a relatively low risk, failure to comply with food safety protocols, due to data corruption or loss, can result in significant financial risks, which make food and beverage manufacturers ripe targets for ransomware attacks. As this industry, like others, increasingly relies on automation to ensure food safety, so must it address the growing potential for hackers to corrupt automated technologies.

Maintain Security Zones to Prevent Threat Migration

Isolate sensitive data to minimize access points and protect critical operations data. Continuously monitor and remediate threats to proprietary data.

Separate what’s sensitive.

Protect and Monitor Critical Control Points

Secure access from data ports to user accounts. Detect and block phishing campaigns before they cause damage. Securing corporate networks and IP is as important as protecting the food supply.

Stop phishing.

Continuously Assess Risk

Improve visibility of threats targeting the organization and industry, prioritize remediation of the most critical vulnerabilities, and accelerate response.

See more and act faster.
