Website Vulnerability Assessment – You Can’t Afford Not To Do It

Every year, hacking costs the American economy $100 billion. In a recent attack, hackers, operating under the ISIS name hacked into the WordPress sites of several businesses. Hackers often don’t have a specific agenda in mind, but they do like to disrupt the organization in any way. Often, hackers do not need much to get into a website. In cases of the WordPress hack, hackers utilized a plugin vulnerability. Small points of entry can cause maximum damage. For small business owners, they are at a higher risk. In 2013, small businesses were targeted in approximately 30 percent of all cyberattacks. As bleak of an outlook as that sounds, cyberattacks can be avoided with the right kind of protection and knowledge of how the hackers think. […]

Why you need to change your passwords

If it’s anything Sony has taught us, it’s that we can never be too cautious with our online security. Online hacks are being perpetrated everyday but one way to keep the online hackers guessing is to consistently change your passwords. Keep in mind, just about anything you do online requires a password, but getting in the habit of changing your password every 3-6 months will automatically get you an upper hand to internet safety. On average, we own 6 passwords for various websites we go to each day, including email and social media. Most of the major email systems don’t require a password change every so often, but there isn’t anything that says we can’t be proactive to be cognizant of it. […]

Communicating Through Your Website

Your website is your communication standard for your clients. It is the most accessible to your clients, and oftentimes referrals come at a premium through this source. When you design a website, you want to ensure that your website is communicating to your clients. This is often understated but it’s as important as having a website in the first place. Websites communicate your message to your clients, but more importantly it conveys a sense of direction and ideology that you want to share with them. […]

Website Wow Factor Leads to Success

You often hear about your website needing a “Wow” factor. It sounds good in principle, but what does it really mean. This factor refers to not only a great looking website, but what it does. When you hire a friend of a friend to do your website, or even a family member, they don’t have “Wow” factor in mind. They are merely showcasing their “skills” in doing something as a favor. A trained, and educated graphic designer has this factor in mind because it does three things – and these three things are perhaps one of the most important anyone could ask for in a website. […]

Google Scam Blog (Revisited) – Update

In August, we talked about being extremely careful when fielding phone calls from people from “Google”. It was common practice for these scammers to go under the guise of Google and give you a shpeel about not ranking high in their search engines and giving them your credit card numbers. This is where the scam gets a little more dangerous – they’re now using Yahoo, Bing, Facebook, and other social media avenues to further their cause. As we become a little more astute to the scammers using Google’s name, their hope is that using a different company will throw you off just enough. Here are some items to put into perspective from 2013: […]
