What goes into developing a website?

Building a website is like building a house. First and foremost you need a plan. For a website to be effective, it has to achieve certain goals. For instance, who is the target audience? What do you want that audience to see? What is the message you want to convey and better yet… how do you want the audience to respond to that message? For a website to function well and produce the results you need it to, you must have a plan that addresses these questions.

Then there is design. How do you want the website to look? What type of customer interaction do you need to have? How will you incorporate your existing branding?

In almost every case, the most important piece of the build is how to manage and promote the site. You need a solid SEO and social media plan in place to get your website noticed and in front of those who need and/or want what you have to offer.

For most, that is where the process ends. At IDS, we have two additional layers to help make your website a better investment in your business.

We include a layer of security in every website we build, which helps keep your website safe against attacks and malicious software (malware and viruses). This offers those viewing your site a safe experience. IDS also offers a maintenance package, which is designed to keep your site updated and backed-up. If anything should go wrong, your site data can be restored with minimal interruption.

Don’t trust your website to just anyone. Let IDS work with you to develop a website that will best suit your business needs and produce the results you need it to. And best of all, work with IDS because their customer service is unrivaled by anyone! We will make you feel like the most important part of the process because after all, YOU ARE!

Types Of Security

MALWARE | PHISHING | MitM | DOS | SQL INJECTION | ZERO-DAY

MALWARE

Malware is a term used to describe malicious software, including spyware, ransomware, viruses, and worms. Malware breaches a network through a vulnerability, typically when a user clicks a dangerous link or email attachment that then installs risky software. Once inside the system, malware can do the following:

  • Blocks access to key components of the network (ransomware)
  • Installs malware or additional harmful software
  • Covertly obtains information by transmitting data from the hard drive (spyware)
  • Disrupts certain components and renders the system inoperable

PHISHING

Phishing is the practice of sending fraudulent communications that appear to come from a reputable source, usually through email. The goal is to steal sensitive data like credit card and login information or to install malware on the victim’s machine. Phishing is an increasingly common cyberthreat.

MAN-IN-THE-MIDDLE

Man-in-the-middle (MitM) attacks, also known as eavesdropping attacks, occur when attackers insert themselves into a two-party transaction. Once the attackers interrupt the traffic, they can filter and steal data.

Two common points of entry for MitM attacks:

1. On unsecured public Wi-Fi, attackers can insert themselves between a visitor’s device and the network. Without knowing, the visitor passes all information through the attacker.

2. Once the malware has breached a device, an attacker can install software to process all of the victim’s information.

DENIAL-OF-SERVICE

A denial-of-service attack floods systems, servers, or networks with traffic to exhaust resources and bandwidth. As a result, the system is unable to fulfill legitimate requests. Attackers can also use multiple compromised devices to launch this attack. This is known as a distributed-denial-of-service (DDoS) attack.

SQL INJECTION

A Structured Query Language (SQL) injection occurs when an attacker inserts malicious code into a server that uses SQL and forces the server to reveal information it normally would not. An attacker could carry out a SQL injection simply by submitting malicious code into a vulnerable website search box.

ZERO-DAY EXPLOIT

A zero-day exploit hits after a network vulnerability is announced but before a patch or solution is implemented. Attackers target the disclosed vulnerability during this window of time. Zero-day vulnerability threat detection requires constant awareness.

Some Common Questions

Every website proposal we draft includes a security package that the client can accept or decline. If declined, we explain the risks and have the client sign a refusal form which releases IDS from any liability, should the website be compromised.

IDS offers the following forms of security with every website we develop:

  1. Obscurity
  2. Malware
  3. Virus
  4. Firewall

We run a security check on client websites every week. Any software updates that are required are performed at that time.

Typically not. With that being said, because IDS utilizes security software from 3rd party vendors, we can not control any unforeseen charges for software updates/upgrades that may be imposed by the security software developers. We can say that this is not something that is common with the vendor’s IDS chooses to do business with.
