Hacking, Fishing and Cannabis Companies, how Pot became the next cyber security target

With the billions of dollars flowing though point of sale systems it’s only been a matter of time before thieves saw the opportunity in cannabis companies networks. Recently a leading software ERP company was hacked and reported attacks that hurt production.  According to the Poneman Institute the average cost of dealing with an attack in the US was valued at $15 million dollars in cost (2015).  

Hardcar Security has recently been deploying offensive cyber security enterprise software to thwart these type of attacks. Todd Kleperis CEO of Hardcar reports “We saw a glaring need in our customers networks, so we filled that with the best leading edge cyber security software we could find. Cannabis companies like any other are vulnerable to cyber security hacks.  It may have been easy to stay hidden before but with the growth in the industry – thieves are targeting cash rich firms. We have part of the solution.”

Hardcar has partnered with several leading software vendors to protect infrastructure and production via the web and internal networks. Hardcar provides cyber security audits, facility fortification, compliance testing, armored transport, employee background checks and a host of other services for the industry.
