Alert for firms using Digicert SSL certificates

We have been made aware there will be changes to a significant number of SSL digital certificates provided by Digicert. This is scheduled to take place on July 11 at 7pm GMT.

This issue may not be relevant to all firms, but given the importance of valid certificates we feel it is important to flag. Due to the technical implications of this alert, firms should consider passing this message to the CISO/CTO/CIO as appropriate. We understand this is an issue that goes beyond the financial services sector so it may be prudent to check with any important suppliers or third-parties.

Should you identify an issue please contact your provider directly.

More information on the potential impact can be found on the DigiCert website.
