According to Kaspersky Lab e survey, e-Commerce as an overall industry segment pays significantly less attention to guarding sensitive payment information and protecting their systems from IT security breaches. This seems highly counter-intuitive from what might be expected of a company that exists solely to process online transactions, but the responses regarding almost all aspects of e-Commerce security were notably lower than the average responses of traditional businesses.

For example, the survey asked each business about the top concerns of the IT department…
1. The highest overall response was “Protecting highly-sensitive data (including financial information) from targeted attacks,” an answer given by an average of 34% of businesses. The responses from the e-Commerce segment were lower than this average, at 28%.
2. The second-highest overall priority of the IT department was “Preventing IT security breaches,” given by 29% of all businesses. Again, the responses from the e-Commerce section were lower than average, at 22%.
3. Another high-ranking concern for the IT department was “ensuring continuity of service for business-critical systems,” cited as a top concern by 23% of businesses overall. E-Commerce again came in lower than average at 19%, which is shocking since their entire revenue stream could be cut off by a DDoS attack.
