Cyber-security has become an increasingly important aspect of business operations in today’s business world. With more and more business communications conducted via e-mail, many typical business owners receive dozens of e-mail messages per day. Unfortunately a story this week serves as a reminder of the potential dangers lurking in some e-mail attachments. A virus called CryptoLocker has made the rounds on the internet, infecting the computers of users who open a particular executable file. The program locks documents on people’s hard drives, demanding a ransom payment within 72 hours to unlock them, or else the malware threatens to destroy the files. Dubbed “ransomware,” the program demands payment of roughly $300.00.
With cybersecurity more important than ever, the producers of the In View series hosted by Larry King, an educational cable TV program, will look for stories about ways that businesses and corporations can protect their digital assets. Show producers like associate producer John Patrick, associate producer Derrick Milhous, associate producer Karla Sullivan, associate producer Rachel Van Drake and associate producer Brian Cahill will also seek out stories about companies that provide cybersecurity products and services that help to protect consumers and businesses from malware, viruses, Trojan horse viruses and ransomware.
