From production to table - prevent downtime and revenue disruption with 24/7 threat detection and response that secures your food supply operation
Cyberattacks on the food supply industry have proliferated in the news, with at least five major food manufacturing organizations and their third-party ecosystem partners being targeted in the past year. When the world’s largest meat processing company was paralyzed as a result of a ransomware attack, product shortages resulted across the global food supply chain. Similarly, when a critical food supply ecosystem partner in oil pipeline production was hit by ransomware, the impact was hours shy of mass food outages across North America due to distribution and transportation challenges. In both cases, millions in ransom payments were issued in an attempt to reduce the downtime impacts.
Since food manufacturers play a critical role in the food supply chain, they face an increasingly complex set of challenges to protect the critical data assets for their own business as well as their customers. Although cybersecurity awareness continues to gain traction at the executive and board levels, cybersecurity teams still find themselves under resourced due to the increasing speed and precision with which threat actors are accomplishing their objectives.
In addition, manufacturers in the food supply chain find that more and more of their top retail and food service distributor customers mandate that they take steps to mitigate cyber risk. Demonstrating adequate threat detection and containment capabilities, and adherence to regional or industrial compliance requirements has become the norm. Compounding margin pressures due to the macroeconomic climate, rising competition and geo-political tensions, are only increasing the challenge to obtain the budget and resources necessary to protect your role in the food supply chain from downtime & revenue disruption.
As a security leader, there are many factors you need to consider that contribute to increasing cyber threats within the food manufacturing supply chain especially as threat actors seek to:
The food supply chain consists of producers/manufacturers, processors, retail distributors, and end consumers. Whether your organization is a manufacturer, processor, distributor, or consumer, threat actors will capitalize on vulnerable systems and human nature to achieve their objectives. Therefore, you must be able to:
The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) designates food and agriculture as one of the 16 U.S. critical infrastructure sectors, encompassing about 2.1 million farms, 935,000 restaurants, and at least 200,000 production and processing facilities.1
No matter where you sit across the food supply chain, your organization can be susceptible to multiple cyberattacks including:
Without the appropriate security measures in place to detect and respond rapidly, these threats can result in:
Ransomware has become a topic of discussion globally as cybersecurity leaders grapple with the magnitude and impact of this threat. Over the past 2-3 years, adversaries have shifted to using Ransomware-as-a-Service (RaaS) and sophisticated social engineering techniques to deploy highly targeted cyberattacks.
Successful attacks unfold in mere hours from Initial Access to data exfiltration and ransomware deployment, making the time to detect and time to contain critical factors in building an effective cybersecurity program.
Unless you’re prepared to defend against modern ransomware, these attacks can result in your organization being locked out of mission-critical systems and applications for days or even weeks. The resulting downtime can be detrimental to businesses, driving many CEOs to pay the ransom.
Adversaries will continue to evolve their tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) to fulfill their objectives and deploy ransomware. Ultimately, the difference between protection and disruption comes down to the speed at which you can identify and contain a cyberattack.
