Australia’s rural industries have already faced two significant cyber attacks in the past 12 months – is agriculture becoming a top cyber target, and are we prepared?

That’s a question a new AgriFutures Australia report by BDO explores, commissioned to identify rural industries’ cyber security vulnerabilities and to provide information on appropriate responses for producers, industry and agribusinesses of all sizes.

In this podcast we hear from John Borchi, Partner, Cyber Security at BDO Australia and author of the report.

John says rural businesses are now in a similar position to where the health system was five years ago, where the digitisation of patient records resulted in them becoming a prime target for cyber criminals.

He discusses the steps farmers, producers and agribusiness can do to better protect themselves from malicious cyber activity.
