SSL - The Need to be Secure

As some of you may be aware, Google (with Chrome) Firefox, Edge and other browsers are making a concerted effort to ensure all websites are running under the HTTPS protocol.

At the end of October Google will begin phase two of its plan to label on HTTP pages as non-secure with the release of Chrome 62

Google will begin marking non-HTTPS pages with text input fields—like contact forms and search bars—and all HTTP websites viewed in Incognito mode as “NOT SECURE” in the address bar.

Current State

You have probably noticed the early stage of this initiative earlier this year when the URL associated with an unsecured site displayed a small warning icon in the address bar of your browser

How to Fix

For owners to secure the information being shared among their visitors and their web server, they must start incorporating an SSL Certificate.

Failing to do this is risky for both parties: sites that allow the sending of information in clear text may also allow its exposure through the Internet.
