Any time we connect to the Internet we are vulnerable to cyber attacks.  

Individuals and small businesses are prime targets for cybercriminals..  Often they have the least-protected websites, accounts and network systems, making a cyber attack a relatively easy job.

So what precautions can we take to stay safe online?

Anaerobic Digestion (AD) Plants and Ground Source Heat pumps have PCs, control panels and other devices that need to be connected to the Internet to allow control, monitoring and technical support to maintain a fully 24/7 operational status.

We can help the on-farm operating team and third party technical management to have 24-hour monitoring access .
