FBI issues warning to US agricultural cooperatives

Cyber-attacks on cooperatives during planting and harvest more likely

Recently, the FBI has issued a warning to US agricultural cooperatives that ransomware attacks could be more likely during the planting and harvest seasons. While attacks against the farm-to-table sector occur regularly, the Private Industry Notification says the number of incidents against cooperatives during key seasons is significant.

Since 2021, several ag cooperatives have been affected by a range of ransomware variants. During the fall of 2021, six grain cooperatives were attacked. Some had to completely stop production while others lost administrative functions, disrupting the food supply chain. In early 2022, a company that provides feed milling and other ag services reported two instances – which were detected and stopped – that could have impacted planting.
