Happy National Donut Day! Enjoy your sweet, soft, sugary donuts, donuts, donuts, but DO NOT forget to analyze your network for possible cyber-attack vulnerabilities! Popular Canadian donut chain Tim Hortons learned this lesson the hard way. This past February, over a thousand locations across Canada found their computer systems crippled. Malware entered the donut chain’s point-of-sale network. It made point-of-sale systems inoperable in many locations and the restaurants couldn’t process transactions, leading to partial and complete store closures. It resulted in an immense loss of revenue as they had to pay employees not to work AND loss of sales AND product spoilage.
