NOT SECURE - Chrome 68 Security Warnings will appear from midnight tonight in the UK

Businesses and Public-Sector Agencies throughout the UK, and across the globe, are hours away from being exposed as NOT SECURE online, with many organisations seemingly unaware of the Data Protection risk to their customers, staff, and supply chain, and the risk to their brand reputation.
Website owners need to ensure that they use an SSL certificate to avoid having their site marked as NOT SECURE.

The changes coming with the 24th July, global release of Chrome 68, the Google web browser used by 58% of all website visitors, are likely to cause significant public concern and loss of Trust, as many sites where users surf, shop, or login to vital services will be branded NOT SECURE in the address bar of their browser. Research carried out by Ipsos shows that 7 out of 8 people will not use or buy from a website that shows security warnings.


Other browsers such as Microsoft Edge, Safari, and Mozilla Firefox are following Google’s lead, as the latest moves in a long-term plan to drive better Personal Data Protection and public awareness of Security and Trust issues across the internet.


The changes will affect businesses of all kinds, as well as government sites, Councils, NHS, charities – over 54% of UK websites are likely to be affected as they are still HTTP on the day before the change.


Trustify is leading the way in helping organizations adjust to this change and protect their reputations online, with Trustify’s SITEFIX offering delivering a one-stop way to FIND, FIX and SECURE every HTTP site across organizations of any size.


Trustify’s CEO Alistair Murray says “Many organizations are set to be taken by surprise when Chrome 68 launches, and members of the public will be understandably concerned when sites appear as NOT SECURE. Our SITEFIX service at www.trustify.com/sitefix enables organizations to FIND, FIX and SECURE all their exposed websites and stem the loss of visitor traffic and loss of business. “
