The Buzz. Cannabis & Cybersecurity: Heather Cortez, GoBrightCyber

Jocelyn Kane talks with the Director of Marketing and Sales for GoBrightCyber about cybersecurity and the information technology perspective of operating businesses in the cannabis industry. Are consumers put at risk when they share their personal information with a budtender and end up in a database? Is their privacy at risk or pose a value proposition to cyberthiefs? Do cultivators face operational vulnerabilities by automating functions like lighting and watering. What can be done to minimize the threat posed by malware and ransomware? Heather Cortez answers many of these questions on this episode of The Buzz.
