Do you protect members' information and security while they browse online? A new study says some associations fail to use secure browsing.
Associations can take simple steps to protect a member’s digital security, but in a recent benchmarking study from Pedalo, a British design and marketing firm, half of sites tested—five out of 10—were not using the technology.
Secure browsing, otherwise known as “https,” is a widely adopted measure that protects an individual’s information and security online. Forgoing secure browsing puts members at risk and can erode their confidence in their association.
The study scored association websites according to a list of criteria related to user experience and membership engagement. Here’s how the sites averaged:
64 out of 100 points
Clarity of Message
53 out of 100 points
Trust and Security
52 out of 100 points
46 out of 100 points
41 out of 100 points
