Please note the new date for this session!
I’m looking for speakers for the following Infosecurity Magazine webinar session:
Browsers, certificates and trust: what’s changing and what you need to know, 1500 BST, Thurs 2nd April
Certificates are a key part of the digital transaction value chain, and a key way both to secure transactions, and to establish trust.
But all browser providers are end of life-ing a set of certificates used to encrypt transactions between consumers and websites. Google, for example, has advised that Chrome will gradually sunset SHA-1 cryptography, which is used in the signing process of SSL certificates, so businesses supporting Chrome will need to upgrade.
Join us on this webinar to:
– learn about the background of SHA-1 certificates going end of life;
– understand the potential impact on business, including the potential negative effects on consumer trust and their willingness to complete transactions;
– understand how to prepare for a move to SHA-2, including key dates and possible technical challenges;
– learn how to manage any potential disruption and compliance issues, and how to manage the transition to new certificates
Please contact me if you’d like to take part. The session (as with most of the webinars) is sponsored so generally that rules out companies specialising in IT security products, but end users (CIOs/CISOs), academics, analysts and consultants are welcome.
