PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: RMK Consulting, LLC Warns Business Owners of Latest Cyber Attack

 

San Marcos, TX – 09/15/2017 – RMK Consulting, LLC is issuing a warning, prompting local businesses to be on the lookout for the latest variant of the Locky ransomware virus, which is once again making headlines across the country. A variant of this computer virus has become part of a large-scale email-based campaign that manages to slip past the defenses of some unsuspecting companies.

 

Locky is a common type of ransomware that first emerged in 2016 and has since been utilized in a wide range of cyber attacks. The main way this Locky-variant is spread is through social engineering. This means that through phishing emails, everyday professionals are duped into opening a file containing the malicious ransomware. If the user follows through and opens the attached file, the ransomware then takes over the users system and demands money be turned over to restore functionality.

 

While antivirus and firewalls are incredibly effective in reducing risk, business professionals need a more robust security solution in place to defend against increasingly sophisticated cybercriminals. To be fully protected, companies should have a reliable back-up & disaster recovery plan, with online and offline backup solutions. Without this ultimate failsafe in place, companies are much more susceptible to data loss and debilitating periods of downtime in the event of a successful breach.

 

“It is absolutely vital that we properly educate our clients and the general business community about these risks,” says Ron Kulik, Owner at RMK Consulting, LLC. “Whether it be the latest Locky strain, or some other malicious cyber trend, we can provide the right insight & resources to minimize the serious risk at hand. We encourage all local professionals to reach out to us for proactive guidance – don’t wait for disaster to strike.”

 

Ron Kulik is available for an immediate interview about this unnerving cybercrime and its potential impact on business owners.
