Survey: Does Your Website Use a SSL Certificate?

In advance of an article in the works, I want to gather a bit a reader data about your organization’s website. Specifically, which ones have SSL certificates installed and if so, is it only for payment gateway requirements.

In English, SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is what allows a website to create a secure, encrypted connection which it then uses to transmit data. The most common use is connecting a website to a payment gateway provider to process online credit card payments. It’s also common to find when connecting to a database that sends and/or receives a patron’s private information.

This quiz is now closed. You can find results and learn which answer is correct in the 8/15/2022 article.

The survey results will be included in the upcoming article, which you can expect toward the end of the week. Thanks in advance for taking the time to submit a reply.

About Drew McManus

"I hear that every time you show up to work with an orchestra, people get fired." Those were the first words out of an executive's mouth after her board chair introduced us. That executive is now a dear colleague and friend but the day that consulting contract began with her orchestra, she was convinced I was a hatchet-man brought in by the board to clean house.

I understand where the trepidation comes from as a great deal of my consulting and technology provider work for arts organizations involves due diligence, separating fact from fiction, interpreting spin, as well as performance review and oversight. So yes, sometimes that work results in one or two individuals "aggressively embracing career change" but far more often than not, it reinforces and clarifies exactly what works and why.

In short, it doesn't matter if you know where all the bodies are buried if you can't keep your own clients out of the ground, and I'm fortunate enough to say that for more than 15 years, I've done exactly that for groups of all budget size from Qatar to Kathmandu.

For fun, I write a daily blog about the orchestra business, provide a platform for arts insiders to speak their mind, keep track of what people in this business get paid, help write a satirical cartoon about orchestra life, hack the arts, and love a good coffee drink.
