SECURITY ASPECTS OF ELECTRONIC COMMERCE

  • Igor Kambovski

Abstract

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.
