With the threat of cyber-attacks increasing in the agriculture industry, some farmers differ if there is a need to secure data.
Jason Perdue farms and raises cattle in Eastern Nebraska. “I don’t understand all of what’s out there and all of the possibility of what is at risk.”
He tells Brownfield he’s more concerned about livestock data than crop information. “I’m probably a little more concerned if something were to happen to our controlling system like the ventilation, feed or water in our livestock barn.”
Pork producer Aaron Kavan says protecting his data helps keep the US food supply chain secure.
