Cannabis Cyber Security

Cybercriminals want to steal the same information from cannabis businesses as they do from all other companies and retailers: valuable and sensitive data, personal info, and intellectual property.

Cannabis businesses are especially attractive because of their data and because most haven’t implemented security protocols and tools.

Many burgeoning companies, like cannabis retailers, may not fully invest in protective, cybersecurity measures as core parts of their business models due to competing priorities. While any retailer is always a target for cybercriminals, cannabis retailers present a bigger target due to the nature of their business. And medical marijuana dispensaries may be an even bigger target due to the ready access they may provide to personal medical records, many of which may prove to be very valuable on dark web forums.
