As a prospective customer of First Southern Bank, one of the things I look for before choosing a bank is online accessibility. I am writing you this letter to suggest some tips on how to improve your webpage. You may not realize that for some people the website is the “first impression” for your bank. I do not feel that I am a professional web designer, but I am avid web suffer. With the hustle and bustle of today’s society, online banking, online shopping and paying bills online is a few of the ways I can stay ahead of the game.

With such a vast range of customers with all different needs such as business, personal, savings, and loans, organization is the main key to being successful. Efficiency is an absolute must, especially when people are dealing with their hard-earned money. The first thing that I noticed that could be updated is the initial homepage.

...McBride Financial Website Security Plan Reggi CMGT/441 April 7, 2014 University of Phoenix   McBride Financial Website Security Plan Introduction McBride financial services is upgrading their website to be more interactive with clients. The goal is to create self-serve options for clients though the website and through kiosks located in the offices. McBride wants to reduce the number of employees needed to handle client accounts using this new business plan. The new plan will increase the need for data protection to ensure that customer’s personal data is kept same during all points of the application and loan process. Implementing online loan applications means customer information will be input into web forms and then transferred to the company database. This creates the potential for hackers to steal or corrupt the data and to use it to gain access to other company servers. In order to prevent this from occurring and limiting the damage done in the case of a successful attack McBride must implement a Prevention, Detection, and Recovery plan. Prevention A prevention plan for McBride will be need to include protection for the company servers and protection for client information. The first step in this plan is to establish a demilitarized zone (DMZ) to separate the web server from the company databases and other company servers. The most secure way to implement this is to use two firewalls. The first one will be set to allow necessary traffic to the web...

Content is an important element because it features all of the information the company wants their customers and viewers to know about. The key to a good website is providing relevant content that your readers want. According to Murton, (2013), “Good navigation works hand-in-hand with the look of your website. You should certainly spend a good amount of time considering how to set out the navigation. Where will it be located, how will you categorize each page, etc.,” (pg. 1). Usability is another important element because good websites are easy to navigate, and quick to load and provide visitors with useful information and resources.

Because many people don’t read entire books cover to cover, you also want to have reference points and contact information in multiple places in your book. The contact points should be pared up with different free offers or resources because different offers will appeal to different people. In many cases, publishers fight you on this process of connecting with the reader and referring them to websites because they don’t want you to take them (the publisher) out of the loop. The publisher believes they have created this opportunity for you and when the time comes they may produce another book for you, which the reader will buy. The truth of the matter that many publishers miss is that a connected reader will buy a lot more information or services right now as they are engaged, and another book as well if you are satisfying them with the information they wanted.

The collective aims to help outstanding emerging digital media practitioners obtain work by giving them exposure (The Loop, 2013). The actual portfolios are not stored on the TDMC site. Instead, each category of digital media has a list of names, thumbnails, and links to the practitioners’ websites. There is also a category for generalists – people with skills in multiple areas. The collective knows that recruitment agencies and prospective hirers of digital media professionals regularly look at the portfolios on their site. Inclusion is usually by invitation only but you aim to send them a link to your digital media portfolio in the hope they will be sufficiently impressed. Although they are primarily interested in high quality innovative work, they only include portfolios that are professional, well-structured, easy to understand and navigate. 1.2 Purpose This website will utilize a high quality web design that is minimalistic and designed for portfolios, allowing my works to be the main focus.

I will also state the necessary steps to support the company’s migration from external to internal hosting. With the overall goal being to allow the customer the ability to order products in this case being a bag of chips from the website. Data migration will occur over a two week period with charts and diagrams to show the steps and timeline to accomplish the necessary tasks. The company is very concerned with redundant systems to ensure that there is no more than 5 minutes of down time in any given 365 day period. With web hosting fees going down over the past several years, it makes little sense for a business to host their own web site on their own computers. Web hosting companies do a large volume business it only makes sense to allow them to host for and it is cheaper than trying to do it yourself. The Advantages of using a web hosting company include but are not limited to, studies show that self-hosted site are down on the average two weeks a year. While outside web hosting companies boast an amazing 99.9 % uptime, and as a business you know that every minute your site is down you...

...Website Content Plan When thinking of what media format and or plug-in to use, it was a bit difficult. There are so many different types to use. One of the problems that I see with using them is how do you know if the customer has the latest update or not. If they don’t then they will have to update their computer and that may inhibit them from being able to navigate the site. Taking this into consideration my site will not be using any of these. I will be using graphics in several different areas of the website. The first area will be the logo used for the site. This will be used on all the pages within the site. The next area they will be used as thumbnails. The last area will be the graphic examples that were created for different customers. The content will consist of a home page, a gallery page, multiple example pages and a contact page. The home page will provide information on the services that are offered. The gallery page will have thumbnail examples of the different scalable vector graphics that were created, which then will hyperlink to a the example pages. The example pages will show a larger view of the scalable vector graphics and a brief description of what the graphic was created or used for. The contact page will provide the contact information. As the designer of all the SVGs on this site there are no copyright restrictions. When dealing with the usability and accessibility of this site. I wanted the site to be very easy to navigate.

There are several key pieces of information which will need to be displayed to customers in full, and encouragingly enough to entice Taco Hut patronage. The content on display will also need to represent the full selection of menu items available and the dedication Taco Hut has to cleanliness and customer satisfaction. Media Formats and Plug-Ins At launch, media formats will be limited to simple images facilitating flow and layout. Formats should include those of which are universally rendered by all modern browsers, bright and that pop. To satisfy this, it has been decided that all images will be formatted in Portable Network Graphic (PNG) format. This format has been chosen because it provides the best flexibility and least amount of resource usage; both server and client side. The only plug-in currently planned for implementation is JavaScript, this will be part of Google Analytics, which will be in use for customer browsing activity. Graphics Usage Graphics will be used sparingly on all pages, except the menu page. On the menu page, pictures will be taken of food prepared by Taco Hut’s master chef. These images will be taken of the varying items available and displayed as thumbnails, which can be expanded by a customer’s click of said thumbnail. Other graphics used throughout the Taco Hut web site will be relegated...
