About The Fine Cheese Co

The Fine Cheese Co. based in Bath, was established in 1995 and is a maturer, wholesaler, retailer and exporter of artisan cheeses from the UK, across Europe and America.

Along with it’s sister company, Artisan Biscuits, the company engages with customers online, wholesale through 600 delicatessens, as well as through farm shops and a chain of their own cafes.

The Challenge

Global wholesaler, retailer and exporter of artisan cheeses and biscuits; The Fine Cheese Co. were hit with a number of security ransomware attacks that prompted them to re-evaluate their entire IT strategy.

With a large percentage of their business being conducted online, as well as having a global supply chain, it was imperative that The Fine Cheese Co addressed the security breaches and IT outages that had been negatively impacting their business.

John Siddall, Owner & Director of The Fine Cheese Co explained “We had been hit with a series of security attacks, most notably, ransomware, were the attackers corrupted our data and then demanded money in Bitcoin. We had actually paid two of the demands, but then we were hit by a really major one and they wanted over £20,000 in Bitcoin.
