In our 8:30 segment, we spoke Cybersecurity with Kirk Downey, Managing Partner of Abacode. Kirk is a Managing Partner at Abacode where he also heads up the Real Estate and Hospitality Division at Abacode. Kirk is very involved in the Multifamily Industry and sits as an Executive on The National Suppliers Council with NAA. Kirk is also involved with NMHC and The Real Estate Roundtable and has owned and managed numerous companies in his career and brings his successful business experience, strong leadership and professionalism to the Abacode team. His teammate Jeremy Rasmussen was scheduled in studio too but was held up and unable to attend the program.
Kirk shares with the listeners tips on ransomware and how hackers are averaging a $2000 payday per attack. Kirk also shares with us the number one thing hackers want is name/emails/phone numbers, the rest is bonus if they can obtain it. They can then sale this information on the Dark Web for a considerable profit! Not only does Abacode install software that works to protect the consumers, they have a 24 hour monitoring service and cater to mid-size businesses, those with revenue in excess of $5M. Most small to mid-sized businesses are flying blind when it comes to cybersecurity. They don’t know what they don’t know per Kirk and that’s why they launched Abacode 3 years ago. Kirk came on board in the past year and the company is expanding to meet the needs of the Cybersecurity market. They’ve never come to a system that their team could not break into (with proper authorization of course) and have a wealth of tools at their disposal to help protect your data from criminals.
