Site Security Improvements – Phase 1

Secured by 128 bit SSL Encryption

This morning we rolled out the first of a few improvements to security on the WorshipPlanning.com site.  This particular enhancement ensures that all account data between your browser and our servers is transmitted with encryption.  Also known as SSL (Secure Socket Layer – read more here), this encryption helps ensure that data can’t be easily read by programs or servers sitting between your computer and our servers.

WorshipPlanning.com has always given Planners the option to log in securely with our “Secure Login” link.  That link took you to a special web address that was secure.  Additionally, credit card payments data was always transmitted via SSL.  But now we have secured all website addresses (worshipplanning.com, http://www.worshipplanning.com, my.worshipplanning.com, etc.).

So, how can you tell if your connection is secure?  Most of you probably already know that you can tell by looking at the web address.  If it starts with “https” (as opposed to just “http”), then it is a secure connection.  Depending on how you access the site, you might notice that many of the “external” WP pages (pages you can get to without logging in) don’t use SSL security.  But rest assured that after you type in your user id and password, clicking the “Login” button initiates a secure connection that will be maintained for the rest of your session.

If you have any questions about any of this, fell free to post a comment here.  In the next few weeks we will roll out the next phase of our security improvements.
