Why Your Website Is At Risk Of Being Flagged

Earlier last year, Google announced that it will flag all the unencrypted websites by the end of 2017.

What being flagged means is if your website does not have an SSL certificate, it will display a….

‘Not Secure’ in the URL bar.

An unencrypted website is basically an unsecured website due to lack of an SSL certificate.

SSL is the backbone of secure Internet. It protects your sensitive information as it travels across the world’s computer networks.

Before quickly dismissing your site as “too small to be a target,” No business is too big or too small to fall prey to a security breach. Bear in mind that most interceptions are done electronically without a human deciding who is attacked.

The SSL certificate is especially critical if your site does the following;

  • E-commerce- if your company accepts credit cards online. Do you really want your customers at risk of having their credit card information stolen while shopping on your site?
  • Password logins- this applies to almost all sites because wordPress or Joomla (the content management systems used to build most sites ) are database-driven with a login page for the administrator. Membership sites with multiple logins also create more opportunities for black-hat hackers to attack.

Besides protecting your data, having an SSL certificate also gives confidence and trust to your clients hence increasing sales.
