Ransomware global attack

May 15th, 2017

rgcreative logo
I am sure you will be aware of the recent attacks on every system from those run by private individuals and small businesses to national services and global corporations, and how much disruption they have caused. Here’s a heads up…
Ransomware is probably the nastiest and most prolific form of malicious software around at the moment. It encrypts your data so you can’t read it, very quickly and very effectively. It demands a ransom to decrpyt the data, usually in excess of £150 (but paid in “Bitcoin” which makes the recipient untraceable) and rising the longer you wait. It can bypass most simple anti-virus software, and avoiding infection therefore requires very specific attentiveness and security awareness. Even the most vigilant people can be caught, though. Be extremely careful.
There IS protection that can ensure your system is extremely unlikely to be compromised, that can save you the cost of paying the criminals or a specialist to recover your system from being encrypted.

 

I strongly recommend subscribing to Sophos’ Anti-ransomware protection which I can help you with. The subscription for a private individual licence is less than £50, and I can now provide it with a full installation service for a total of £80.
If you run any operating system from Windows XP to Windows 8.1 you are now at extremely high risk. You should run all Windows updates immediately, whether you intend to use the Sophos protection or not.
Please get in touch if you need assistance. Once your system is infected, it is too late to recover anything without paying the ransom.
Some receiving this message may already be protected – but I’m notifying everyone as a matter of course… because you might have other computers that are not protected, as well as the one I’ve already worked on!

 

Stay safe. Thanks for reading.

How much?

That can be the most difficult question to answer when it comes to a new website.  Not here.  Take a look at the Budget Prices page first. If you’re still unsure about cost, here’s what to do.

  1. Take a look at the website portfolio.
  2. Visit some of the sites and find one that looks like it does what you’d like yours to do.
  3. Get in touch and ask how much it costs to get a site like that.
  4. You’ll get an honest answer, and it will probably be a lower figure than you expect.
  5. If it’s still too much, name your budget and we’ll try to find a way to work within it.
Can’t say fairer than that can we?

Some testimonials from long term customers …

Genesis Telesales

Genesis TM
We operate from several locations and needed VoIP telephony, web services and a website with a CRM system that would both promote our services and enable us to work simultaneously. Robert Gerrard had all the answers, set it all up, and it works.

UBLOW Limited

As a start-up, it is very difficult to comprehend what your business might require. Robert Gerrard took my specification and talked through various options advising on items that would be best suited now, and what to consider for the future. We saved money. We’ve now added an online catalogue to enable NHS and other buyers to place quotation requests for order. We’ve also used RGC to provide a new website for our UPOST business.

When you contact Robert Gerrard about something you need, it’s done remarkably quickly. That’s a service worth the asking price. I’m ready to pay for quality advice and service that can save me more than I spend on it. My website has gone from strength to strength, it pays for itself many times over.
