What are Secure Pages?

At Iowa Western we value you personal information, we take every possible effort to keep it secure. All forms on the Iowa Western website are put behind a https:// url. The "s" stands for secure and lets the server know to encrypt the information being sent. Standard http:// pages send and receive information that is unsecured and in most cases that is perfectly fine as you or the website are not transmitting personal data for most of your surfing. Financial institutions, email, and shopping carts should all be behind the https:// if it does not and you are transmitting personal info you may be at risk for possible identity theft.

Look for this icon secure iconon any Iowa Western web page as another identifier as it being secure.
