5 Ways to Protect Your Website Against SQL Injection Attacks

Protecting your customers from potential data breaches directly impacts your credibility as a business. Customers are more likely to trust you. However, protecting your website from security threats impacts your business itself.

It is simple–if your website gets compromised, your business automatically shuts down, or you lose some customers and eventually credibility. So you need to ensure that your website is up-to-date and secure as it isn’t just a representation of your business but also consists of the most sensitive and valuable information.

Hackers today are efficient enough to find vulnerabilities in a website and attempt to steal, manipulate or even gain admin access to the database server. This is why it is important to give limited access to users even when you trust them. After all, you would not want to leave any hole in the security system, right?

Well, limiting user rights is one way to protect your … Read more

Should you buy auto insurance stocks right now? Expert’s Advice

If you drive a car or plan on purchasing one, you must be aware of the importance of auto insurance. In almost every state in the US (except New Hampshire and Virginia), you need to get a liability insurance policy to drive a car legally. Car dealerships won’t give you the car even if you have paid for it if you don’t have a proper liability insurance policy. If you live in one of the 12 “no-fault” states, you’ll have to get a personal injury protection plan as well.

These were the mandatory auto insurance policies. Then there are the important optional policies as well. For example, collision and comprehensive auto insurance policies are extremely important and popular. So from all that we can see and extrapolate, as long as there are cars on the roads, there will be insurance companies as well.

According to the NAIC, nearly 215 million … Read more

Electric car subscription service Onto raises £50m

London-based Onto has raised $60m (£49.9m) in a Series C equity funding round for its electric vehicle (EV) subscription service.

A study from accounting firm EY found that 49% of drivers want their next vehicle to be an electric car. However, EVs remain prohibitively expensive for many. Data from NimbleFins shows the average upfront cost of an electric car is almost double that of a standard car in the UK.

Onto is offering a different way to finance EVs. Customers are charged a monthly fee that covers the car, insurance, and public charging.

“With almost 90% of our customers preferring the convenience of an all-inclusive package that covers everything – even public charging – our unique proposition addresses these customers’ needs,” said Onto co-founder and CEO Rob Jolly.

“We believe that making it simple and easy to get an electric car is essential to building a sustainable future.”
