Protect Your Website
If you think cyber-attacks only happen to big businesses? You are wrong. According to an article published in CNBC, about 43% of reported cyber thefts targeted small businesses. On average, these attacks cost small businesses about $200,000 every year.
Common Cyber Threats
Cyber-attacks are constantly evolving, but business owners should at least be aware of the most common types.
This is a common type of cyber security threat. This is a term used to describe malicious software viruses. Trojans, worms, spyware, ransomware, and adware are some examples of malware. In addition to breaching a network, malware downloads and opens email attachments.
Viruses are harmful programs intended to spread from computer to computer (and other connected devices). Viruses are intended to give cybercriminals access to your system.
By encrypting system files and folders, ransomware restricts access to them. There are some types of ransomware that can lock the system as well. When a system is encrypted, it requires a decryption key to be unlocked. A ransom payment is then demanded before the decryption key is provided. Ransoms are paid online using difficult-to-trace digital currencies, such as Ukash and Bitcoin. Trojans are usually used to deploy ransomware. WannaCry ransomware is one of the best examples of ransomware.
A phishing attack is a form of social engineering that targets individuals and attempts to gain access to their networks or systems. Email is the most common method of sending phishing attacks. However, this attack can also be delivered via SMS texts or phone calls. Phishing attacks can be prevented by not clicking links, not publishing PII online, avoiding emails that fake urgency, verifying email addresses are authentic, checking for spelling and grammatical errors, and implementing security awareness training.

Did your website get hacked? Maybe you noticed your site is acting weird, redirecting to spammy sites, unknown links, irregular server usage, or maybe you got an email from an unhappy customer. I will remove the malware infection and improve the cybersecurity posture of your website.
Mitigating Cyber Attacks
Whether you manage a personal or business website, I can help you protect your site by making an assessment and improve the security posture if necessary.
These are some actual report pictures on how I’ve been able to mitigate and block some of the most common cyber-attacks on some of our clients’ websites. I use a bundle of software, technologies, tactics and techniques to keep these websites secure. Most of these features are available to protect your site included in the Full Protection Maintenance Plan.
Finding Vulnerabilities (Burp Suite)
I guarantee that your website will not be hacked if you host your website with my company and purchase monthly WordPress maintenance services.
If your site gets hacked, I’ll fix it for free. I offer this because I am so confident that the security measures in place will keep your site safe. If your site is hosted by another company, I do not make this guarantee. I don’t have full control over the hosting service, so I can’t control all potential security issues.
I take several measures to ensure the security of my web projects. This includes using secure coding practices, following industry standards and best practices, regularly updating software and plugins, implementing strong authentication methods, and using HTTPS and SSL certificates to encrypt data.
I prioritize website security by implementing firewalls, using secure hosting and server configurations, and regularly monitoring for any signs of potential security breaches. I also stay up-to-date with the latest security patches and updates to minimize vulnerabilities and protect against common cyber threats.
Yes, I use SSL certificates and other security protocols on the websites I develop to ensure secure communication between the web server and user’s browser. This helps to encrypt data transmitted over the internet, protecting it from interception or tampering.
I take several steps to protect against malware, viruses, and other security risks, such as regularly scanning websites for malware, using security plugins and tools, and implementing strict access controls and permissions to prevent unauthorized access. I also stay updated with the latest security patches and updates for all software used in the website development process.
I handle sensitive client data with the utmost care and confidentiality in compliance with several Cyber Security Frameworks such as PCI DSS. I follow best practices for data protection, including encrypting data, using secure communication methods, and storing sensitive information in secured databases with restricted access.
Protect Your Investment
In addition to use a reliable web hosting, I regularly create backups of websites I develop and store them securely in separate locations to ensure data redundancy. In case of any unexpected events, I have a disaster recovery plan in place to quickly restore websites to their previous state and minimize any potential downtime or data loss.
During website development and maintenance, I follow secure coding practices, regularly update software and plugins, implement access controls and permissions, and use secure communication methods. I also conduct security audits to identify and address any potential vulnerabilities. Contact me for details, as audits are an extra service I provide.
I protect against unauthorized access and data breaches by using strong authentication methods, implementing secure login and password protocols, and regularly monitoring websites for any signs of suspicious activity. I also use security plugins and tools to detect and prevent potential breaches. In addition, I provide Dark Web monitoring services (included in the “Full Protection Maintenance Plan“) to be updated on data breaches, leaked personal information, etc.
Yes, I can provide references or examples of previous web security projects upon request (some are included in my “Portfolio” Page). But I will be glad to provide more detailed work I have done using Burp Suite, Wireshark, Kali Linux, Nmap and other tools. This will allow you to assess my expertise and experience in handling web security projects.
If you suspect a security breach on your website after it has been developed by me, it’s important to notify me immediately. I will promptly investigate and take necessary actions to address the issue, such as scanning for malware and remove it, updating security protocols, and implementing additional security measures as needed. It’s crucial to act quickly to minimize potential damage and protect your website and data.
