SECURITY ASPECTS OF ELECTRONIC COMMERCE
Every company, and often individuals, which are able to fulfill certain
needs or simply just for fun, have their own internal networks as well as a
simultaneous approach to the world wide web. Computers, laptops and
smart mobile phones are available to all segments of society, which
improves connectivity and communication. This is generally possible with
the unstoppable spread of internet and unlimmited use of it`s capacities.
The Internet itself offers many ways to educate users and to recognise
basic and advanced computer functions. This approach is at the same time
revolutionary, remarkable from the point of view of the development of
human civilization that, for the first time in history, can "at one time" find
all of its knowledge, experience and achievements. On the other hand, it
is dangerous because there are different traps for inexperienced, and even
for those who know something about protecting their privacy and finance.
Most Internet users have a specific goal of doing it - correspondence with
friends, finding different information, electronic commerce or electronic
banking - тhe possibilities are very different and varied. Nevertheless, all
those users have one thing in common, in fulfilling their goal of staying
online - they do not have enough attention, time or even the will to
properly protect themselves and get to know the possible troubles thay
may encounter if they enter into different types of transactions or
communications. It's a fact that many classic crimes can be committed on
the Internet, as well as acquiring information on users can prepare or
enable the execution of almost all criminal offenses against life and
physical integrity, property, copyright, and many others. In addition to
them, there are also criminal offenses whose development is exclusively
related to the development of electronic communication and the Internet.
There is a wide range of behaviors that can be harmless, but can lead to
the most serious crimes.
