This paper is an attempt to give a high-level overview of security in the e-business world. E-Business includes informational websites that are being fielded on an almost daily basis by companies. This paper attempted to view security concerns as a problem to be solved with technology and main consideration is to which firewall or encryptography should use rather than formulating a security strategy. Technology is next to useless unless applied within a strategy, just as tanks are wasted without an overall battle plan. Some of the security threats areas, such as services advertising, require the implementation of only few, security controls, while others, like customer recruitment/registration, require more comprehensive controls, to ensure compliance with money and customer's requirements.
