Orion Webinar - Weather, Cybersecurity & Insurance

OFG Logo 2020.png

Orion hosted our inaugural Webinar on 11th February covering how Data & Systems are becoming increasingly important for Farms.

Victoria Nicol, Business Development Manager at Sencrop, covered the opportunities provided by gathering Sencrop weather data across networked stations at the farm level, in terms of immediate weather dependent actions that farms can take.


John Scotford, Senior Systems Analyst at Farmplan, then updated attendees on the key risks associated with the increasing reliance of farms on data and background systems, and some of the key steps that we can all take to reduce the risks.


Ollie Burns, Sales and Marketing Manager at County Insurance, finished the session by giving some case studies of farms that have been caught out both by weather and cyber-security breaches, and went on to outline insurance options relating to data security for farms.

Some fantastic insights from three great presentations together with a number of useful Q&As. Do you want to see some or all of the Webinar in your own time? Simply register to receive the link and then sit back and enjoy!
