Food Defense: How to reduce the likelihood of a deliberate attack on your business

This is a thorough analysis of what elements a food defense program needs to contain starting with an introduction to food defense, an explanation of the different types of threats that exist, an introduction to the new food defense standard PAS 96, how to select the most practical food defense approaches and the first steps in implementing an organizational food defense effort.


PAS 96: 2017 - A guide to protecting and defending food and drink from deliberate attack

Defending your food and agri-food products is essential to your business’ reputation and survival. The PAS 96:2017 Guide to Protecting and Defending Food and Drink from Deliberate Attack is the first standard to holistically address potential threats and mitigation of deliberate attacks on a food system, process or product. PAS 96 covers deliberate attacks and addresses specific threats including extortion, malicious contamination, cybercrime, espionage, economically motivated adulteration, counterfeiting and more.


The PAS 96 standard story: Helping protect food and drink supply chains from deliberate attacks

Previous to the creation of the Publicly Available Specification (PAS), there were no guidelines that covered deliberate food supply attacks such as economically-motivated adulteration, malicious contamination, espionage, extortion and counterfeiting. This is the story of how this standard (which incorporates the Threat Assessment Critical Control Points (TACCP) method) was created and now has broad industry support and acceptance.


Defending food from deliberate attack

As there is no prescriptive way that you must assess food defense, the verification criteria for PAS 96:2017 is based on intent rather than prescriptive requirements. This allows you to determine your organizational and operational threats and how they’re managed in a food defense plan that’s specific to your situation.


Food Defense: Preventing the threats we see today

The FDA’s Intentional Adulteration Rule is aimed at preventing intentional adulteration from acts intended to cause wide-scale harm to public health, including acts of terrorism targeting and tampering with the food supply. This is a topic of high interest and importance to our sector. This recent webinar profiled the requirements of the FDA Intentional Adulteration Rule, an introduction to intentional food adulteration, how to build a food defense strategy, how how using PAS 96 will help to reduce the likelihood and impact of a deliberate attack and much more.
