We live in a DIY (Do It Yourself) world where WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get). Thanks to resources like YouTube and Pinterest, both businesses and consumers alike are being empowered to handle projects themselves. Need a new bed frame? Watch a YouTube instructional video and build one! Want to bake a complex wedding cake? Check out the food videos and recipes on Tasty and get cooking! Need to build a website for your business? Well, that’s another story. It turns out some things like interactive web design and development have negative consequences if done wrong, and a bad website is worse than no website at all.
About 43% of cyber attacks are directed at small businesses. Cyber attacks do not only affect e-commerce sites. Hackers can break into online forms where customers are entering personal information. These hackers deface web content and structure and implant viruses. They can turn a beautiful website into a weapon to attack other sites, destroying online credibility and affecting business reputation. Cyber attacks can even get websites banned from search engines.
On average it takes six months for most businesses to detect a security breach. At Fireman Creative we are consistent with security software updates and offer our client’s website care and maintenance plans with regular website security sweeps to ensure breaches are detected right away. We install the latest in security functionality and fix bugs to allow websites to operate appropriately. We also provide intuitive mobile-ready design and optimize multimedia assets for improved download times.
