Are the many blunders made by web sites, and the recent internet attacks, as well as an increased knowledge of the seeming lack of security affecting the confidence consumers have in the internet? What should be done to fix the problem and reassure consumers? How will not dealing with the problem affect e-commerce, and peoples use of the internet?
Over the last years, with well-known names like Amazon, and eBay, e-commerce has made a big impact on society. People are using the web like they've never before. It has almost become a normal part of society, that you'd go to amazon.com, just as easily that you'd go to the local brick and mortar bookstore.
These are real problems that need to be dealt with as the internet, and e-commerce, become more important in our economy. Will lack of consumer confidence have the affect of restraining the progress that's been made online?
