JBS' Ransomware Challenges Highlight Larger Cybersecurity Issue In Food And Retail

The ransomware attack on meat processor JBS has highlighted the larger issue of cybersecurity in retail and food and beverage, and firms should take steps to ensure that they aren't the next to be affected, GlobalData has said.

A rogue group based in Russia, REvil, was blamed for last week's attack on the meat giant, which was forced to temporarily close some of its facilities. Late last week, JBS issued a statement to say that it was back fully operational, and expects losses to have been recovered by the end of this week.

JBS isn't alone in being targeted in a ransomware attack in recent months; high-profile firms to face similar issues in the past year include Molson Coors and E & J Gallo Winery, while Colonial Pipeline, the largest US fuel pipeline operator, was another recent victim.
