Cyberbiosecurity: A new perspective on protecting U.S. food and agricultural system

We know that the research process creates data, and data is increasingly valuable. But can we visualize all the nooks and crannies that data is coming from in a more technologically connected society? Take for instance the food and agriculture sectors, influencing more than 20 percent of the U.S. economy. Herd data records for the dairy industry, pedigree information for the food animal industry, and soil and machine condition data from row crop farmers are only a few examples of data sources in the sectors. But what of the security of that data? Duncan et al. take a brief look at these sectors and provide insight into the ways that cybersecurity, biosecurity, and their intersections are increasingly important. The conclude by making suggestions for "[w]orkforce development, effective communication strategies, and cooperation across sectors and industries" to better "increase support and compliance, reducing the risks and providing increased protection for the U.S. bioeconomy."
