Future Trends Internet Security

E-businesses are very vulnerable to computer hackers, viruses, worms, and logic bombs. For this reason, e-businesses must be particularly careful to protect their customer and product data, software, servers, communication ports, trade secrets, and business processes.

Using the Internet, and starting at BusinessWeek.com, conduct research on one of the following topics and the trends related to security issues:

  • Identity theft
  • Application-level firewalls
  • Encryption
  • Viruses, worms and logic bombs
  • Hacking

Prepare a PowerPoint presentation about your topic. Make sure you include information about the security measures that e-businesses can implement to protect themselves and their customers from serious problems.
