Website Security Isn’t an Option

Since 2014, Google has been encouraging website owners to use HTTPS.  So what is HTTPS?  HTTP is Hypertext Transfer Protocol and is the technology that passes information for websites across the Internet.  HTTPS is the secure version of HTTP and uses an SSL Certificate to encrypt the traffic, which is a good first step in website security.  When a website uses HTTPS the data is protected from hackers viewing the traffic.

Security Update: BadUSB

An insecure USB device plugged into your computer, laptop, or phone can quickly corrupt your computer or device beyond repair. That doesn't mean a simple trip to a computer repair service or software update will fix your problem. That means your entire computer may just have to be thrown out.
