SECURING WEBSITES WITH SSL
At HouseCapital.co.uk we use cutting edge SSL certification technology: RapidSSL.
This technology allows us to encrypt data that is sent to and from the server, which helps to keep valuable customer details safe.
Why use SSL Certification?
SSL (secure socket layer) is used to encrypt personal details like passwords, credit card numbers, addresses and other sensitive data. It is a security protocol that establishes an encrypted link between the browser and the server, ensuring that all data circulating between them remains private. When secure authentication happens, all serves except the chosen one get data which is scrambled up and indecipherable. That helps protect your information from anyone attempting to steal it.

WHAT YOU CAN DO TO ENSURE SAFETY
Phishing is a type of fraud aimed at obtaining sensitive data (username, password, credit card details and other account information), in which an attacker disguises themselves as another person or even an institution. Phishing emails can ask you to perform various actions, especially click malicious links or open attachments in an attempt to extract your personal information. Cybercriminals often rely on social networks to gather data on victim’s background and interests, that is why this scam type is an example of using social engineering techniques to compromise web security.
Pharming, like phishing, is used for online identity theft, and it is even a more sophisticated method. A pharming attack redirects you from a legitimate website to a forged one, which often looks identical to the page you are used to seeing (this may include pages of your financial institution, Amazon, eBay and other ecommerce or online banking websites). Even though the website address in your browser may look the same as a valid one, you will not be on the legitimate server. The easiest thing you can do to prevent a pharming attack is to check the accuracy of the URL address and that the HTTP is changed into an https when asked to fill in personal information.
