E-Commerce is an integral part of the people lives now. It has boomed in popularity for both retailers and consumers and this trend is not going to stop anytime soon. The cost-benefits for businesses in overhead and the convenience for shoppers are strong motivators to continue the growth of e-commerce. While there are many benefits of e-Commerce, it is important to remember that there are definitive security challenges that businesses face in e-commerce. But, these are probably not enough to deter merchants (and customers) from engaging in online transactions; still they need to be paid careful attention in order to minimize the risk.
