Seminar: Cyber security in the food industry

11 February 2018

A Campden BRI seminar, on 27 February 2018, aims to inform the food industry about the cyber security threats and challenges currently being faced by the food industry. It will also identify industry’s potential vulnerabilities. 

High profile cyber attacks occurred across a variety of manufacturing sectors in 2017. The food industry has not avoided the attacks, with some big names being hit by Ransomware attacks.

The British Standards Institution and Food Standards Agency has recently updated the PAS:96 Guide to protecting and defending food and drink from deliberate attack. This fourth edition is the first to include cyber crime as a potential threat to food security.

The forthcoming Campden BRI seminar will cover:
• Updates in the 4th edition of PAS:96 guide 

Guidelines on best practice from the National Cyber Security Centre

Retailer and Standards requirements for food fraud and food defence and how industry can meet them •Government views and Defra’s response
• Industry perspectives

The seminar should prove to be of interest to senior management, technical and quality managers, those responsible for QMS and IT Managers. To find out more contact: or call 01386 842104
