Digital technologies have the potential to boost agricultural productivity to meet global food demand. Internet-enabled sensors allow farmers to gather vast amounts of real-time data on growing conditions, drought, and pest control that can inform future decisions. Many farmers in the countries where USAID works also rely on digital services to gain access to loans, sell their harvest, and set aside money that can help them resist shocks. However, with the obvious benefits of digital agriculture come new risks. Insecure or poorly designed digital agricultural devices or applications can be hacked, potentially exposing sensitive data—including Personal Identifiable Information (PII)—to cyber criminals or other malign actors. These data breaches can pose significant risks for farmers and other members of the agricultural value chain, including identity theft and loss of assets. USAID and other donors that are increasingly using digital solutions in agricultural programming must identify and mitigate potential threats to program participants. On a macro scale, cyber attacks can threaten global food security. Attacks on smart farming and on precision agriculture devices can threaten yields and, if mounted on a large enough scale, can pose a serious risk of widespread hunger and economic damage at a local, regional, or even national level. While most farmers USAID works with are not at this level of agricultural automation, this is a challenge that USAID and its partners should consider for the future.
