Ransomware: negotiating payment!
___________________________________________________________________________________________

If you have reached this stage then the difficulties remain, not just that the data might never be returned but also that any payment could leave you vulnerable to future attacks and/or further harassment from the attackers.

How can you protect yourself and your company?  Backup.  Backup and backup, and test those backups work (restore on occasions to check).  Schedule your backups; make reminders to ensure your backups are done.  Keep them safe, encrypt them and keep copies.  See how to backup your website here: https://www.seiretto.com/newsletters/backups.php

Parish Council? Why you need a new .GOV.UK domain name:  TRUST.
___________________________________________________________________________________________

TRUST!  If you receive an email from a council using an email address other than a .gov.uk address then there is little if no trust in the sender.  However, receive an email from say the clerk at your Parish using a .gov.uk address (eg. [email protected]) then this evokes trust and adds credibility to the content.

We can register a .gov.uk domain name for your Parish.  Registering a new .gov.uk domain can be a tedious and lengthy task.  Let us take away that job for you, we can secure a new .gov.uk domain name for your Parish Council.  This is the time to get your council using a domain that proves your authority and distinction.  Ensuring you select the correct name for your new gov.uk domain name can make all the difference in quickly securing the new name.
