As data and connectivity become a greater part of John Deere's work and for their customers' operations, so too does securing it against threats. That's why John Deere has dedicated, full-time cybersecurity teams around the globe who are committed to protecting their customers, dealers, products and infrastructure.
John Deere continuously strengthens that commitment by investing in the latest tools and technologies, by incorporating industry best practices, and by consistently building upon new and longstanding partnerships with trusted third-party security experts. To help ensure John Deere products are ready to withstand cybersecurity threats, John Deere chooses Bishop Fox's Cosmos platform and product security reviews.
Carl Kubalsky, Business Information Security Officer at John Deere, said the agriculture industry is not immune to cyberattacks and Deere's partnership with Bishop Fox is critical to the company's digital security approach.
"Bishop Fox has demonstrated throughout the years that they're experts in our technology stack and have an ability to help us understand where we might be vulnerable before the adversaries have a chance to effect that value for our customers," Kubalsky said.
James Johnson, Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) at John Deere, said the company has worked continuously since he became the company's first CISO to build its digital security program with internal teams and to partner with external experts.
"Security is not something you just get done overnight," Johnson said. "It's really a journey most companies have to go on."
Johnson said John Deere's senior leaders and board of directors have showed unwavering support to building a strong digital security team, which includes working with companies like Bishop Fox.
"They're security consultants that specialize in (penetration) testing and finding vulnerabilities whether it be in software, embedded systems or cloud environments," Johnson said. "They've been a very impressive partner that connects with John Deere's mission and also with our security group."
