The White House is working to fix a security problem. On Monday the Office of Management and Budget issued the HTTPS-Only Standard directive.
The instruction requires all publicly accessible government websites to use the more secure HTTPS protocol.
OK, so what does this mean? Basically, the government is finally stepping up its data security game to make sure any of the websites where users submit private data are better protected from hackers.
