    0.00 of 0 votes

    Ransomware is one of the most common - and increasing - types of cybercrime. Over the past year, hospitals, police forces, even oil pipelines have fallen victim. If you had a courier parcel arrive late last year, it could have been because transport company Toll was hit twice by ransomware. It can be a simple as a click on a dodgy link and software gets installed on you device or system and stops it from working properly. You will be offered the ability to free your system - for a price. This is extortion. Want to know more, this article is quite enlightening.  Lert Info sends alerts for scams and ransomware  when we are aware of them. We can include you also but you need to register for alerts - www.lert.info

    Lert Info always aims to provide the very best in emergency and general alerts. Two key aspect of a great timeliness and usefulness. Do you know some of our alerts reach you 30- 60mins  faster than other sources.  How is this possible? Subscribers send us information directly, especially localised events like  fires, crashes etc. We find this information very reliable.  Future proofing - Built into our, yet to be released app is a tool for members to message us directly. We find out the location from them  and generate an alert up to 60minutes before any other source.    Example of effectiveness: A car crash was reported to us on  SH1 Waitaki Bridge a couple of years ago. A member  told us the the bridge was blocked. 15 mins later another members advised 1 lane had been cleared. 30mins later another member advised the cars had been moved off the bridge and traffic was moving again .  By the time NZTA sent a closure notice out, the traffic was already flowing again. They sent a cancellation within 5mins. This is no reflection on NZTA at all, it's just that they have protocols to follow and that causes them delays.  We also generate exclusive alerts based on available information and using common sense. The bus strike in Wellington we knew would cause issues. Media initially didn't mention the repercussions, but we immediately sent an alert from Waikanae to Upper Hutt and Wellington. This faster information allows people to plan much better .   If you want an alternate reliable source of information for anything, you can register for our alerts at www.lertinfo.co.nz. We just want you to be better informed

    SOBERING READ. - Great interview   Latest crucial information about Alpine Fault Rupture probability of breaking in the next 47 years has increased from 30% to 75% by 2068.   Fascinating hearing about the earthquake gate.   We attended the AF8 Seminar in Dunedin recently which was also very enlightening.   Important that you find out about the effects likely for your area as each location will be affected differently because of ground structure.   This interview about the 75% risk of rupture by 2068 is a jolt back to reality.     How prepared are you? There will be major breakages of infrastructure. Power for some will be off for weeks. Some silty areas will see liquefaction such as parts of South Dunedin and CHCH.   We suggest you read up on the AF8 scenario at AF8 Website and how it will affect your area.   Lert Info will be here to send alerts as we are in Dunedin which is going to be less impacted. We are assuming and ability to get information out and are currently looking forward to the Starlink network being operation then. Anyone that is one that should be able to get our alerts even though the mobile networks are down.   You can register for all our alerts here  .
