World’s Largest Beer Brewer Sets Up Cybersecurity Team

If a reminder were needed that nobody is immune to the threat of cyber attacks, the world’s largest brewer of beers has felt the need to establish its own cybersecurity division.

Anheuser-Busch InBev (AB InBev) controls over 400 different brands of beer including Budweiser, Corona, Stella Artois, Beck’s. Hoegaarden and Leffe. It’s a huge player in the market as a multinational drinks company, and as Reuters reports, it felt the need to protect itself from attack. The company’s solution is to setup a dedicated cybersecurity unit in Israel, which is widely viewed as a leader in online security and threat detection.

Luis Veronesi, AB InBev’s vice president of global security and compliance, explained that, “With increasing digitalization, we have to be prepared to defend against anything coming.” The cybersecurity office is located in Tel Aviv and will be fully-focused on discovering potential attacks against the company before they happen as well as analyzing any threats.
