Ransomware Attacks Continue to Skyrocket: JBS USA
Another cyber-attack has struck a large, critical business in the United States. This security breach triggered a sense of urgency to find a solution to these devastating events. Let’s take a look at the recent ransomware attack on JBS USA and what you can do to strengthen the security of your data against cyber-attacks and protect your business.
Ransomware Attack on JBS USA
Just weeks after the Colonial Pipeline ransomware attack, the world’s largest meat supplier, JBS USA, fell victim. The ransomware attack shut down operations at nine beef plants throughout the United States. The Brazilian company is working hard to minimize any shortages. However, according to the Daily Livestock Report, just one day of shutting down operations could significantly impact both the beef market and wholesale beef prices.
When the company discovered the attack, JBS suspended all affected systems and notified the authorities. Production resumed a day after the security breach.
Last month’s ransomware attack struck Colonial Pipeline, shutting down the operations of the largest refined products pipeline in the United States. The ransomware attack triggered panic buying along with gas and jet-fuel shortages.
The attack on JBS USA raised fear regarding the vulnerability of critical American businesses to cybersecurity attacks, prompting the White House to urge businesses to take urgent security measures for protection.
