Molson Coors, Lion, KIA, JBS Foods…What do these businesses have in common?
They’ve been victims of a cyber-attack in the past year. These attacks cost the companies significant financial strain…millions of dollars lost.
Why should you care about this?
Cyber-attacks are not just a problem for larger breweries with complex technology behind their operations. Smaller craft breweries, which likely do not have access to the same innovative cyber safety measures as larger breweries but are conducting more business online, are more vulnerable than ever.
Unfortunately, because small businesses handle customer data—and don’t necessarily have the resources to keep it as secure as larger businesses—they’re often targets for cyber-crimes. As consumer-facing entities, breweries gather a lot of consumer data for which they have a responsibility to keep safe. Cyber-security insurance can help protect your business and your customers.
