It’s not exactly the Wild West anymore: Businesses and state-legal markets have matured. But risks and concerns about criminal activity and fraud haven’t waned.
Just weeks into 2020, the cannabis industry has been the subject of several high-profile incidents: a reported dispensary point-of-sale system hack that potentially exposed the data of 30,000 people; the US Securities and Exchange Commission charging two men who allegedly used a fake cannabis company as a front for a Ponzi scheme; and the conviction of a former Colorado cannabis entrepreneur in one of the state’s largest fraud cases.
“These industries are targets just because they’re new and there is lots of controversy — whether it’s political or social — with some of the things they’re doing,” Michael Bruemmer, the vice president of data breach resolution and consumer protection for consumer credit reporting company Experian, told CNN Business.
Experts are cautioning companies to shore up their security practices and for consumers to be mindful of opportunities that seem too good to be true.
