After a strenuous year at the copywriting coalface, G75 Media will be closing its doors tonight. We’ll be returning to action on Thursday January 3rd. In the meantime, have a wonderful Christmas and New Year – and get in touch if you’d like any assistance with copywriting, content production, journalism or web copy…
The G75 Media website has recently gained HTTPS accreditation, protecting site visitors against malicious activity while they’re on our site. After ten years using the standard HTTP protocol, last week’s upgrade reflects our commitment to ensuring everyone can browse our portfolio of published articles (or submit an enquiry about our copywriting services) in complete safety.
HTTPS websites encrypt information before it’s transmitted to the web browsers of individual visitors. This ensures any traffic between our server and the device you’re reading this on is protected against eavesdroppers and cyber-criminals. You’ll often see HTTPS preceding retail or ecommerce web addresses, where financial data is being exchanged and eavesdroppers would have a field day.
Even though our content production and copywriting services are highly celebrated, online criminals probably wouldn’t try to exploit your visit to our site today. Or would they? After all, the G75 Media website was created using the world’s most popular content management platform. Its sheer popularity makes WordPress a favoured target for spam and malware developers. WordPress software plugins are also susceptible to newly-launched malware – known as zero day attacks.
As part of the EU’s new General Data Protection Regulation, G75 Media has to meet strict standards regarding the storage and management of client data. Elevating our website to HTTPS standard demonstrates our commitment to this process. It also places us ahead of many other content production agencies and media firms, who also lack our extensive client roster. A number of our copywriting agency rivals are still using HTTP, resulting in “Not secure” tabs appearing in Chrome or warning messages flashing up in Firefox. We take your safety a little more seriously.
If you already understand the principles of zero day attacks and end-to-end encryption, you might want to get in touch regarding our technical writing and technology journalism services. But don’t worry if we lost you after “standard protocol”. We’ve got everything secured.
While the rest of the UK enjoys a welcome (if rather chilly) Easter bank holiday weekend, work continues at the copywriting coalface for G75 Media. In our new role as copy editors of a national magazine, there are articles to be revised and proofread in preparation for next week. We have the usual turntable of weekly deadlines to be met – even if copy that our clients would normally upload on Monday won’t be seen til Tuesday! And there’s also the small matter of entering a national competition for freelancers, with our entry ready to be uploaded. If we’re nominated, you’ll hear about it here first…
