ZAG featured at AgSafe conference

ZAG Technical Services, an award-winning IT consulting firm, specializing in information technology, cybersecurity and data analytics in the ag and food and beverage industries, is speaking on an expert panel at the AgSafe ACTIVATE24 annual conference in Monterey, CA.

The event session, Cyber Risk Mitigation and Breach Response, will be moderated by Newfront’s Seth Word and will feature several all-star industry leaders, including ZAG founder and President Greg Gatzke. The panel will speak to the before, during and after of a cyber incident, including how companies prepare and protect themselves, what happens when an attack occurs, and development of a response plan to recover with limited business interruption.

To better prepare, businesses should be of the mindset when, not if, a breach will be attempted. Attendees can expect to learn how criminals find their victims and some simple, preventative measures that can be taken to greatly reduce risk. “It doesn’t have to mean catastrophe,” Gatzke said. “More agribusinesses are turning to IT security firms to execute crucial cybersecurity projects. Strong prevention programs supported by incident response plans can have companies back online in hours, not weeks or even months as we’ve seen.” 

In addition to Gatzke and Word, the panel will feature Newfront Cyber Practice Leader Jennifer Wilson and Mullen Coughlin LLC Partner Carolyn Pruwin Ryan.

The session will be presented so industry members from every level of the supply chain and produce discipline can understand modern risks and responsibilities of cybersecurity challenges. The session will provide valuable information, simple solutions and helpful resources, for everyone from agricultural supervisors to executives.

Each panelist will provide valuable insights into the process of prevention, detection, and response with the same end goal – to help secure the food supply chain and the workers overseeing it. Cyber threats will forever be a fact of life; however, adequate protection and a solid response plan can get systems back online without loss of business. “I’m thrilled to be a part of this distinguished panel and look forward to sharing knowledge that will help secure our industry,” Gatzke said. “Thank you, AgSafe, for the opportunity.”
