Protect your wealth
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.
Cybersecurity threats loom large and menacing, as they do all over modern business. Yet, in the cannabis industry, states’ insatiable appetite for collecting all available data in third-party
systems poses additional risks. The value of the product and the cash moving throughout the cannabis supply chain make related data especially valuable to criminals. That track-and-trace is mandatory for the industry to function makes the systems especially attractive targets for hackers’ ransomware or denial-of-service attacks.
