What you can do to stay secure
The protection of data for farmers who have implemented precision agriculture practices and IoT solutions is vital. Farmdeck’s IoT technology lead, Luca Palermo advises to think about privacy now, not later.
This means something as simple as ensuring that low-value assets are secured as they can be used as jump box to higher value assets. While your personal and work devices may be secure, cyber criminals can still gain access through other ways, such as through your family member’s laptop because they are also connected to the same network and their operating system and software protection may be lacking. You need to ensure that all reasonable measures are taken to protect your business. A small step in the right direction is to ensure that you have multi-factor authentication. This gives farm operations, no matter their size, a helping hand when it comes to protecting its systems from attacks.
