Your browser identified itself as a version of IE that was often shipped with default settings that were less than secure. Your internet experience could be made more secure by opening Internet Options in your browser, going to the Advanced tab and looking under the security settings for "Use TLS 1.1" and "Use TLS 1.2". Ensure these are turned on (checked). Doing so will enable your browser to support a higher quality of encryption on this and other websites. You will still be able to browse this site without turning on support for TLS 1.1 and 1.2, but we will have to use a lower level of encryption to accomodate you. See this question on Stack Exchange's Superuser forum from 2011 for more details keeping in mind the comments about TLS 1.2 non-support were made many years ago, and things have changed since then.

If the support for better cryptography has been turned on for your browser, thank you, and you can safely ignore this advisory.

Reliable security for government data

People trust the government to protect the sensitive information it collects. Data breaches or other security failures damage this trust and expose governmental agencies to penalties and other sanctions. Even more importantly, stolen data can threaten the country’s stability and security.

Heightened security standards and evolving threats have intensified the need for a sophisticated approach to data protection. Federal and state agencies require a powerful encryption tool that protects sensitive information while facilitating data exchange within and between departments, agencies, contractors, and companies.
