Your browser identified itself as a version of IE that was often shipped with default settings that were less than secure. Your internet experience could be made more secure by opening Internet Options in your browser, going to the Advanced tab and looking under the security settings for "Use TLS 1.1" and "Use TLS 1.2". Ensure these are turned on (checked). Doing so will enable your browser to support a higher quality of encryption on this and other websites. You will still be able to browse this site without turning on support for TLS 1.1 and 1.2, but we will have to use a lower level of encryption to accomodate you. See this question on Stack Exchange's Superuser forum from 2011 for more details keeping in mind the comments about TLS 1.2 non-support were made many years ago, and things have changed since then.
If the support for better cryptography has been turned on for your browser, thank you, and you can safely ignore this advisory.

Before it has funding, a marketing campaign, customers, or even an office, a startup has one all-important asset: information. In fact, you could say that every startup begins its existence as information itself, in the form of a codebase, a blueprint, a business plan, or some other form of intellectual property. As a company grows, it will collect vast amounts of new information in a variety of forms—customer data, transaction records, plans for additional products—all of which are critical to its survival and success.
Unfortunately, few startups recognize just how much protection their data requires. A strategy based on network and device security, no matter how sophisticated it might be, simply isn’t enough to keep data secure. Companies that fail to encrypt their data are taking an unnecessary risk that can rob them of their ability to grow and compete.
After months of delays, the Trump administration has issued its first executive order on cybersecurity, signaling the direction that the federal government’s new strategy will take. The order addresses three broad topics: the security of federal networks, protections for critical infrastructure, and cybersecurity for the general public. Among its calls to replace outdated technology and to create a more capable cybersecurity workforce, the order contains one directive that will make an immediate difference in how the government manages its cybersecurity programs.
Data breaches are simply a fact of life. Businesses in every industry, in every country, are attacked by data thieves and malicious insiders on a daily basis. As pervasive as they are today, cyber threats will only grow more severe as time goes on—each newly-developed way to communicate or do business online creates new forms of sensitive data that hackers, industrial spies, and state-sponsored operatives are ready to exploit.
Data protection is no longer the domain of the IT manager.
Enterprise organizations are dealing with larger data volumes, more data-dependent business models, and more unpredictable cyber threats than ever before. These pressures, along with new regulations passed in response to them, have moved the conversation about data protection from the IT department to the boardroom. One of the most visible signs of this shift is the emergence of a new role at corporations and government agencies: the data protection officer.
