BRC Issue 8 – Cyber Security

1 Day Events, SOFHT Breakfast Club
05 Feb

The Food & Beverage industry is vulnerable to cyber-attacks and cyber-threats which increase in complexity. Therefore, cyber-security policies should be assessed regularly using the evolving regulations and standards as part of the Food Defence Plan. How a company reports its response to a cyber-security incident can have a lasting impact on it’s reputation, so applying appropriate thought and care to how, when, such an incident is prevented, managed and communicated is a must.
