Protecting Ag Infrastructure from Cyberattacks

The risk for cyber attacks in agriculture is on the rise, as the farm sector becomes more digitally-connected. That risk has been highlighted in recent months, with a growing number of ransomware hacks.

Dr. George Grispos, with the University of Nebraska at Omaha, joins us now for a closer look at the problem, addressing questions such as: why is agriculture being targeted for security hacks, what impact could these cyber attacks have on the ag sector as a whole, what is the expectation for this trend to continue as more technology moves into farming equipment, and what can the farm sector do to prevent these attacks and stay better protected?
