Cyber threats rain down on the agriculture industry

Tech is dominating many industries including agriculture, which was low-tech for many years. Agriculture has seen small and medium sized farms become dependent on satellite imagery, drones, smart tractors and other tech as these tools become more useful for farm work. While new technology is helping increase yields, cyber has become a threat unforeseen by many in the industry.  Michael Born, vice president in Lockton’s Cyber Technology Practice, explains to Risk & Insurance that many of these devices don’t have the best cybersecurity which can lead to operational interruptions. Born acknowledges that there are many advantages to using new tech for the agriculture industry, but it is important that farmers understand the risk.
