Who's Providing Good HTTPS?
Regrettably, not enough websites in Utah have chosen to make HTTPS their default. SecureUtah.org created UtahWatch to track the HTTPS usage of a curated group of Utah websites and make it easy to see which local companies, organizations, and services are doing their part to protect their visitor's personal data and traffic.
UtahWatch evaluates and tracks the HTTPS usage of a cross-section of Utah-based businesses and organizations: security groups, software companies, law firms, startup incubators, coding clubs, media outlets, prominent businesses, financial institutions, non-profit organizations, social services, healthcare, politicians, and more.
It does not track the websites of entities that have a presence in Utah but are headquartered elsewhere. Although the goal is to have all websites move to HTTPS, it is not practical to track every website - some editorial decisions must be made about which websites to include. The hope is that if the included sites have high quality HTTPS implementations then the others will follow.

SecureUtah.org has collected and reviewed other groups of websites to help demonstrate the unfortunate lack of HTTPS from entities that really should know better. Updates to these lists will be infrequent.
Spreadsheet of other websites includes:
Utah Security Con Sponsors - Utah hosts two excellent computer and network security conferences, BSidesSLC and SAINTCON. The sponsors for these cons are almost always companies that provide IT services, usually directly related to security. As sponsors to security conferences these companies should be leaders in providing a safe web connection.
USA States .GOV - This list was made to see how many other states use HTTPS for their .GOV and Legislature homepages.
Data Connectors SLC - Data Connectors is a traveling showcase that holds one-day events in cities nationwide. The sponsors are all IT and security companies that are hoping to gain new customers. Using proper HTTPS for their websites should be a no-brainer.
