Where Cybersecurity and the Cannabis Industry Overlap

Operating a cannabis business is inherently risky, and not just because several states still haven’t legalized the drug for medical or recreational use. Even if patients can get access to cannabis for certain medical conditions — like in the state of Pennsylvania — with technology in the equation, there are many things a dispensary owner needs to consider to protect not only their business, but their customers.

Law firm Leech Tishman recently hosted a webinar where attorneys explained the cyber risks for medical cannabis dispensaries and how to mitigate them.

Mike Sampson, a partner at Leech Tishman and an adjunct law professor at the University of Pittsburgh, said it’s imperative that dispensaries safeguard any data they might be gathering.
