How to securely and easily send data to MySql server using Python

Hello there...

I have built a script that reads the data from a csv file ad inserts each row into a mysql database on the internet using MysqlDb (nothing fancy: I just specify ip, port, password, id, no cypher no nothing).

Which kind of method should I use to implement a decent security?

I'd love ideas and - if possible - a few links where study examples.

You have to have access to the server where MySQL is located to set that up.  Here is the page about SSL and there is a link at the bottom about SSH.

But this would still mean to leave my db password on the client side, right?

Yes, SSL and SSH are for encrypting the data going over the connections.  The data stays the same on the client and the server.
