Why Insurance Agency Websites Need SSL

There are many compelling reasons why insurance agency websites should move to SSL, including security, encryption and trust. Google is making a big push to move all websites to SSL, and said that as of October 2017, “Passwords and credit cards are not the only types of data that should be private. Any type of data that users type into websites should not be accessible to others on the network, so starting in version 62 Chrome will show the ‘Not secure’ warning when users type data into HTTP sites. And eventually, we plan to show the “Not secure” warning for all HTTP pages, even outside Incognito mode.”

What is SSL & Why Is It Secure?

When navigating to a website, you might see a domain name resolve beginning with http: Sites that begin with http: are not SSL sites. All SSL sites begin with https:. SSL is an acronym for Secure Sockets Layer, which is the de facto standard used to establish an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. The SSL link ensures that all data communicated between a web server and a browser remains private.

In other words, SSL keeps information sent across the Internet secure and private, allowing only the intended recipient to receive it in an understandable format. Many people don’t realize that information they send over the Internet is passed from computer to computer, before it finally arrives at the selected destination server. That means that any one of those computers, which are communicating your information in this chain, can intercept important information such as usernames, passwords, credit card information, medical information, etc. SSL encrypts this data, making the information unreadable for everyone except the final destination server. This is important for increased security and to protect confidential information from hackers and identity thieves.

SSL Authentication

SSL provides authentication in addition to encryption. As mentioned previously, your information will typically be transmitted through a series of computers. A good example of this might be a quote form, which might contain confidential information about prospective insurance clients. Any one of these interim computers could potentially pretend to be the final destination website and hijack your confidential information. This security issue is thwarted by using a Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), and getting an SSL Certificate from an authorized SSL provider. SSL certificates are provided to verified entities like your insurance agency for example, after they have gone through several identity checks to prove they can be trusted. Insurance agencies wishing to accept credit card payments will be required to use SSL for their sites.

Browser Warnings & Visual Clues

Major web browsers like Chrome, Mozilla, Safari and Edge are now providing indicators to help users determine if an insurance website is secure. Site that have SSL indicate that the site is secure in the top left hand corner by using the word secure, or offering visual clues. For example there might be the word “Secure” displayed, or a lock or other icon indicator. Conversely, a …

Personal Assistant Tips on Finding Where the Jobs Are

As someone looking to find a job as a Personal Assistant, you can be assured that by the time you find the position others have also found it, but the second part of getting hired is to stand out. In the next few pages, we'll discuss the secrets you can use to rise above the competition and how to make yourself look like the perfect selection for becoming their Personal Assistant.

Agencies, headhunters, networking, word of mouth, special lists, the Internet, job sites, friends, family, and using your brain to find every place that could be a lead for a Personal Assistant position. There is even a technique using Who Representations.com that we will also go over.

Once you've figured out which area you want to work in (music, entertainment, politics, sports, etc.), you can begin outlining your search criteria.

One of the better places to begin is with the placement agencies. The good ones should not charge you a dime for registering with them. Inside is a list of the better agencies, but you should be leery of the ones who want to test you like they would a secretary. It is not often that you would have to take a typing, spelling, and math test like some placement agencies have their candidates do. If your agency is seasoned in placing Personal Assistants, then they should sit down with you and thoroughly go over and review your entire background. Remember, some of the Personal Assistant positions out there never do a single day of typing or filing. There are many that do, in fact a majority of them, but this is not the only criteria for getting the position. As you will read again and again through this guide, the things you will be hired for first and foremost are, if your personality is similar to your boss's, and that your skill set compliments the position. Your age, experience, and job longevity are also important but secondary to these.

Another source for job seeking are your connections. Word of mouth can sometimes lead to an opportunity you might never have heard about through conventional methods. You never know who knows whom. Your father may have a friend at work who just got an account with Shaq, and he just happens to be looking for a new Personal Assistant. You just never know. So put the word out. A lot.

Let's talk about back doors. Sometimes, especially when you are newer to this field, the doors all seem locked up tight. So how do you get in? One of the many things you'll learn in this guide is that when you are on the job, you must find creative and resourceful way to get a task done. So why should not job hunting be just as creative?

You've heard this term many times before. Internet Hackers often use back doors to get into sites that are protected. So why should not you use creative back doors to get closer to …
