Physiopedia increases security with HTTPS

Security is a hot topic in the world of IT and the internet and rightly so! The devastating outbreaks of ransomware this year in particular highlight the importance of increased vigilance and adoption of best practices.

Following the launch of the updated Physiopedia site we are now very pleased to have gone live with Transport Layer Security (TLS) on the site which means that now all data transfers between your browser and the Physiopedia website will be encrypted. This will increase your protection as a user of the site preventing a hacker from snooping on your viewing and login data, and also protect against malicious code injection.

We will continue to strive to improve the Physiopedia websites and follow best practices for both user experience and data security. There are many steps you too can take to improve your own online security! Here are two tips that we use here at Physiopedia HQ that you should consider adopting:

Use a password manager – the only way to use unique and strong passwords for all those online accounts.

Use two factor authentication – provides an easy to use simple backup to logins if your password should be compromised.

My interest in health and fitness started at a young age. Even though I had been educated and trained as an engineer in Europe I always want to follow my passion. I have made some guest appearances on a health educational program TV in Europe and, this experience, has made me follow my passion of sharing wellness information with others.
