Paul Booker, Web consultant, UK [CV] [Security audit]

Recommendations (from the last 10 years)

Paul has provided our agency with Drupal support for over 4 years and has always been reliable and professional. He has in-depth knowledge of Drupal specifically best practices on security and optimisation. We would highly recommend using Paul for Drupal support or consultancy.
Sam Allen, Digital Services Director, EPM Digital, April 2021

Paul provided web maintenance support for our Drupal website from March 2018 – July 2019. In March 2018, our previous web support couldn’t continue leaving us “in the lurch” at the time. Paul was great at immediately responding to provide a security audit and useful suggestions to ensure the smooth functioning of our website which included a complex online search of a car measurement database. Paul continued to provide maintenance on a monthly basis. He helped sort out problems including with the Captcha function and continuing issues with the online search. In all requests for help, Paul was responsive and helpful and liaised well with our web hosting company who appreciated his input. Paul provided clear information and useful suggestions based on his experience and knowledge. Under a new CEO, RiDC changed its website, its hosting arrangements and support and we no longer needed Paul’s support. I would positively recommend Paul to other organisations looking to have professional Drupal web support.
Chris Lofthouse, Outreach Manager, Research Institute for Disabled Consumers (formerly RICA), February 2020

Paul has been part of our team now for several years now and manages our website quietly in the background without impacting on our core business activity. This for me is a very positive aspect as it gives me confidence that the management of our website is under control thus allowing it to perform correctly bringing maximum benefits to the business. The service and skills Paul provides are highly recommended.
Dave Eyre, Managing Director, Hardcase International Limited, February 2020

I spent 5 years applying my own security patches and backing up my own Drupal sites. This was a time consuming and frustrating process. I approached Paul to help me with this just over 12 months ago and I have no regrets whatsoever. He applies all the core security patches required within a timely fashion to keep my server secure. And keeps off-site backups in case things go wrong. His service is always efficient and logical, which gives me complete peace of mind. We have also gone through some SEO auditing with Paul which highlighted areas in which we could improve the site to get better public exposure for our site.
Brendan John MA VetMB MRCVS, Veterinary Surgeon, Director, Evolution Farm Vets, Inwood Farm, February 2020

As one of the leading Drupal agencies in the UK, it is very difficult for SIRUSS to find reliable partners and contractors with a level of knowledge deep enough to be able to perform to our extremely high standards. We have used Paul's services and find him not only a very personable, conscientious and hard working chap, he has a thorough understanding of Drupal and Linux systems. I would recommend Paul to others without question.
Russell Dilks, Managing Director, SIRUSS, June 2019

Web and Communications manager Paul has worked with us this year as a remote advisor on sys-ad, code publishing and Drupal support. He is covering us at a very vulnerable time and we feel in safe hands. He clearly knows his stuff. He is knowledgeable, accurate, and useful. And reliable - always important when you are working virtually. (Ed Mitchell, Transition Network Web and Communications Manager). Paul Booker stepped in to hold the lead developer role temporarily while we sought a lead developer and has been reliable and sturdy; his focus will now shift to helping with the web hosting and code publishing decisions as Annesley Newholm takes over the lead developer role.
Ed Mitchell, Web and Communications manager, Transition Network, July 2014

Paul Booker has been managing security and providing support to our large Drupal website for the last five years. During this time he has provided us with excellent professional service, we have always found him to be very responsive and diligent with all of his work as well as good value, I would have no hesitation in recommending him highly.
Benjamin Cook, Director, LUX

Paul stepped in to help us when we'd been left high and dry by our former website developer. He was excellent. Despite having very little information to go on he sorted out all the problems with the site, interactions with third-party sites and our online shop within 24 hours. Since then everything has worked smoothly and glitch-free. He is very well organised and systematic - which makes working with him very straight-forward. As well as all that he is a very nice person.
Gillian Clark, City of London Distillery

Paul completed a security audit after our Drupal website was hacked and subsequently disabled by our host – six days before we would be performing at two important concerts. Not ideal for a fledgling chamber orchestra! I will be ever grateful to Paul that he was able to complete the work quickly and efficiently. He clearly knew exactly what was required and kept me up-to-date with his progress as he worked which gave me peace of mind. I would definitely use his services again.
Nicole Heel, Web & Creative Manager, Kantanti Ensemble

We sought Paul's help when Google flagged our nonprofit's website as hacked and our web developer was unable to fix the problem for us. Paul stepped in immediately upon receiving our inquiry and completely resolved the issue in a very short period of time. He has since maintained our site's security updates on a regular basis, keeps us updated on anything we should be aware of and responds right away to any of our questions. Paul is extremely professional and friendly and his rates are very competitive. I highly recommend him to anyone in need of Drupal expertise!
Christina L. Madden, Director, Himalayan HealthCare

I am a huge fan of Paul Booker's web services. I had difficulty locating a Drupal specialist who could update my website security and assess my website needs. I am extremely pleased with Paul's work on my behalf. He was exceedingly thorough and timely as well as reasonably priced. He also follows up on his work and contacts me when new updates are necessary which I truly appreciate as those critical updates need addressing immediately so the site stays secure. Thanks for the excellent service , Paul. I look forward to continuing to work with you. I highly recommend Paul Booker!

When Paul got in touch with me about Drupal support and security updates, the first thing I did was check his website and recommendations - and now a year later I'm writing one (highly recommending him!) . He's my "webmaster". I'm on his weekly security update roster. He's also done SEO for me, put https certificates on my site, and sorted out various problems. And a big plus for me, is that he lives in the UK, so no time differences or language problems. And the great thing about Paul is that he gets things done promptly, and emails are answered quickly.
Joanne Rudling, How to Spell

I hired Paul to rescue a half completed website that had been built by another developer. Paul's willingness to take on what was effectively an abandoned project and then totally turn it around speaks volumes. I am absolutely thrilled with the work he has done and continues to do, and fully recommend him as a skilled professional.
Nisha Harish

Paul has helped my business in so many ways and saved my sites from hackers and attacks. He also set up a server for my drupal sites and has moved several drupal sites for me and my clients as well. He is reliable, timely, and professional and I trust him completely to maintain and keep my sites secure. As a website development company, it is good to have someone you can trust managing the security of your server. It is hard to find someone with such good integrity and reliability and I would recommend Paul to everyone without hesitation.
