Episode 233: Cyber Attacks: Is Agriculture At Risk?


In this week’s episode, Tracy speaks to Kristin Demoranville, a cybersecurity professional, about “Cyber Attacks: Is Agriculture At Risk?”

Remember the solar flares that caused #plant24 to grind to a halt and, most recently, cyber-attacks on equipment dealers?

It’s no secret. We rely heavily on technology within agriculture.

The question must be asked, has anyone stopped to consider the looming threat that cyber-attacks pose to farms, the agriculture industry, and the entire food chain?

That’s precisely what Tracy and Kristin speak about in this week’s episode.

  • They discuss food safety threats such as recall, quality issues, and food terrorism.
  • They discuss food security threats such as sustainability, nutritional value, and authenticity/fraud issues.
  • Food cyber security threats. Kristin explains where the agriculture and food industry is at risk and provides examples throughout the value chain.
  • What are the biggest threats to the food system?
  • What is the biggest opportunity for the food system?
  • Where is AI already at play throughout the entire food chain, and where can AI improve the systems?
  • Tracy asks Kristin, “What are some upcoming changes/concerns/developments that farmers should expect in the next 5 to 10 years?"

You should tune into this eye-opening episode if you farm and are involved in the food chain system.
