October 22, 2021: Ransomware Attack Disrupted Entire Milk Supply Chain at Scheiber Foods For Days.

Schreiber Foods closed for 3 days in October after cybercriminals compromised its plants and distribution centers. Schreiber uses a variety of digital systems and computers to manage milk processing, "that meant our plants and distribution centers couldn't use those systems, which they need to run.
