A recent online audit of more than 1,200 predominantly consumer-facing websites done by the Online Trust Alliance found that consumer-facing U.S. government websites rank highest in overall security and privacy while healthcare related sites came in last.

The 10th annual Online Trust Audit & Honor Roll Audit found that 70% of analyzed websites qualified for the Honor Roll, driven primarily by improvements in email authentication and session encryption. Healthcare, in the industry’s first year as part of the audit and including pharmacies, testing labs, insurance companies, and hospital chains, had the lowest placement on the honor roll at 57%.
