Hi Everyone,

I am in need of a cyber security consultant. I system admin some servers for one of the companies involved with The Heads of the Valley road. Unfortunately, and rather embarrassingly, they have been 'hacked'. I haven't been physically to the site for nearly 2 weeks, due to lockdown. I am not sure if I would be able to get in to where the servers are anyway.
I used a remote power switch to power down the servers, but cannot seem to fix them once I power them on again.
This setup was recommended by someone I met at a South Wales Linux Group a couple of years ago. He said he lived in Tredegar and worked as a University lecturer. His email address no longer works and I cannot contact him.
So I need someone with Linux, networking and cyber security skills.
thanks for reading

An update.

Everything is sorted now. I eventually tracked the guy down and he sorted it out for me.He also pointed me towards some extra hardware to help secure the servers.
We have also relocated the servers, as work is progressing again on the road.
