Earlier today this website had a problem. When I tried to access it I got an error message saying that my time clock was in error. When I checked my computer clock it was in exact agreement with my cellphone. Thus, my clock was not in error.

Where was the problem?

What does site security have to do with a message that says my clock is in error?

Site certificates have an expiration date and time.
The security software on your computer uses the date & time on your computer and compares it to the validity period of the certificate to determine if the certificate is valid.
If the date/time of your computer is outside the validity period of the certificate, one possibility is that the time/ date of your computer is not correct. (In this case, the certificate had actually expired). Some security software will suggest that your date/time setting is the error or a possible cause of the error.
If you have the complete, exact message you received, we may be able to glean more.
