Keeping Your Business Cyber Safe and Compliant
The recent attack on MJ Freeway, one of the leading marijuana tracking software providers, left over 1,000 marijuana dispensaries unable to track their sales and inventories. Although the attack was aimed at corrupting files and data rather than stealing them, the outcome could have been much more damaging for the dispensaries and their clients.
This breach reveals the critical need for proper cybersecurity and compliance with government-mandated security requirements. This should be a top priority for all cannabis merchants.

Getting your business in compliance:
While your seed-to-sale or Point-of-Sale software guarantees you “compliance” with standard operating procedures in accordance with each state’s cannabis regulations, it does not cover information security compliance. Federal and state laws mandate that your business follow specific guidelines to protect confidential customer information against cyber-attacks and data breaches.
