It seems that almost on a daily basis we hear about another cyber hacking scandal or thousands of consumers’ sensitive information exposed through a data breach.
I admit that I’m increasingly conscious of when, where and with who I share personal information. With data — personal or not — being a highly valuable commodity in today’s world, keeping it safe and secure can be a daunting challenge, especially for businesses.
This is certainly true of precision data farmers are collecting, storing and analyzing. While adoption of data collection tools and methods are on the rise, there is still skepticism within the industry regarding access and ownership of farm data.
But there are safeguards and solutions that dealers can deliver to bolster customer confidence that their farm information will be safe and secure.
