Are any of your sites on the https preload list?
Not using https leaves sites vulnerable to a variety of security issues. However, even if a site supports https, browsers don't necessarily know that. And if your site follows best practices, it can be submitted to the Chromium HSTS preload list. For this week's poll, we ask whether any or all of your sites are using HSTS and are on the preload list, or whether you plan to implement HSTS? Besides voting in the poll, please share your thoughts in a post. View poll
