Implementing an SSL certificate is a basic security measure that allows your website’s visitors to browse using a secure connection. Websites that use SSL get a boost in search rankings, but companies are often reluctant to make the switch. We talked to Staffan Ragnö, partner at SEO agency Firstly, about Google’s security initiatives and SSL’s impact on organic search rankings.
Yesterday, the Swetugg conference in Stockholm, Sweden, gathered hundreds of developers for a full day of talks and best practices. Detectify’s software engineer Martina Janevska was one of this year’s speakers. Martina used her own 2-year old code to demonstrate how much she has learnt about security since she started to work at Detectify – with her new security skillset, she actually hacked her old code to find out how vulnerable it was at the time she built it.
