Going through the process of applying for new Associate Membership online. The first "About Me" page is not showing as https encrypted. I am uneasy about entering any personal information on such a page, especially as the last page in this process is "Payment"...

Should I apply by post instead?

This wasn't entirely a rhetorical question...Do no IET reps want to comment on the security of their website? Given that I am someone who wants to sign up to pay them a significant amount of money for the rest of my career?

Only the Payment page will show https!

Thanks SAVIO,

Frankly disappointed that an organisation which claims to represent professional engineering shows such sloppy security procedures. I'll come back if/when they start taking it seriously.

Hi Paul,

Totally agree with you. For a professional organisation the web site leaves a lot to be desired
