Your Website Needs A Bigger Ego

In the earlier months of my new employment, I was staying with a couple of friends who were gracious enough to lend me their spare bedroom while I commuted to the new city for the new job and went home to the old city on the weekends.

A few months ago, I was out to dinner with these friends (we’ll call them Leo an Cara…not their real names). I can’t remember what it was that brought up this conversation, but we started talking about the security of websites.

We were talking about how to ensure (if you’re entering sensitive data into a site) that the site you’re on is secure and has a valid security certificate. Leo was following what I was telling him just fine, because he works with computers on a regular basis. Cara, on the other hand, is pretty much completely computer illiterate. She doesn’t touch computers. She’ll tell you that too…she pretty much has no use for them.

Upon hearing Leo and I talk about how to validate a website is secure, Cara says, “I don’t have to worry about that crap…I don’t access websites so I don’t care if they’re insecure.”

Needless to say…I told her I would be posting that on the web… 🙂
