Welcome to the PSO Cybersecurity Best Practices for Produce Suppliers. There are two key components to use the PSO best practices. These are:
1. Find your implementation tier by using the Implementation Tier Calculator.
2. Once you have identified which tier your company falls into – High, Medium, or Low – apply the best practices for that tier to your organization.
1. Implementation Tier Calculator (ITC)
Produce supply companies come in all shapes and sizes. Some are global corporations operating internationally and some are much smaller operations that may be seasonal and are focused on one specific type of crop.
Given this disparity, the ITC provides an easy way to determine which tier your company is in. Answer 4 simple questions to create a weighted score that will tell you which list of best practices should apply to your organization.
After you know your Implementation Tier, apply the best practices noted in your company’s level as a starting point.
