boost security, and/or combining several security methods
with biometric security that recognizes people based
on behavioral or biological characteristics.
Companies looking to keep their systems safe must
also balance the reactions of employees tasked with navigating
the hurdle of multiple levels of security. While
those who maintain security deem the extra steps as
worth the hassle, users may not feel the same way. This
can lead to the opposite problem, one where users ask
for the removal of cumbersome levels of security or take

it upon themselves to produce workarounds.
" Adequate processes and procedures need to be in
place to make the system safe and protected while not
being so intrusive that the operator cannot do their job
in an efficient manner, " Vortherms said. " If the system is
immensely cumbersome to the operator, they will find
workarounds to the security measures in place. "
Set an example
As the pet food industry continues to grow in size and
sophistication, so do the techniques of the bad ac " A

permission, but the

as the password and
the person using it. "

tors who look to broaden their scope of opportunities.
Likewise, as the sophistication of malware and ransomware
continue to grow, organizations must constantly
manage and mitigate risk to stay ahead of the next scam.
Banks recommended looking to NIST (National
Institute of Standards and Technology) and ISO
(International Organization for Standardizations) as
reputable sources for security best practices. He also
suggested talking to peers to discuss common trends,
cyber threat news headlines and potential tactics to help
inform an organization's risk mitigation strategy.
There are also examples of crossovers between the
food and the pet food industries, including the use of
similar equipment from an OEM perspective to comparable
processes and procedures, which make the food
industry a good source of counsel.
" In the food industry, having the data related to production
secure, trustable and readily available is a necessity if
there were to ever be a recall or production-related issues, "
Vortherms said. " This same type of security and accessibility
is pertinent for pet food manufacturing as well. "
Best practices
While a security attack might not be totally preventable,
advance planning could prevent extensive damage. Yet,
a plan is only as good as its ability to combat the most
recent threat or scam. Likewise, what might work for
one system may not be appropriate for another, so each
situation must be reviewed independently. Plus, bad actors
will constantly test the waters. When one industry
or organization ups its security, bad actors will choose a
more vulnerable target.
" Security controls are achievable but since there will
always be risk, security programs/initiatives must periodically
be reviewed and adjusted, as necessary, " Banks
concluded. " This requires finding the appropriate balance
between organizationally accepted risk, security
and usability. "
