Now that e-commerce websites are so popular, it’s hard to remember how we shopped before. On the web we can find just about any product we need, anywhere in the world, in just minutes. And when it’s time to pay, we don’t have to stand in line – we can check out in seconds.But even though it’s so easy, one concern still keeps some people from shopping online: security. Cautious shoppers worry that their personal financial data will be stolen.
In response, several credit card companies jointly developed the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). Based on PCI DSS, Visa then developed Payment Application Best Practices (PABP), which is now known as Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS).Since your clients will have to comply with PCI DSS and PA-DSS, they’ll expect you to be familiar with the standards and to select the technologies that make compliance easy.

A Case Study about Building a New Double-Sided E-Government Conceptual Model
Abstract: Traditionally, E-Government was about providing information and services to citizens online such as paying bills, fine, traffic tickets, voter information, complaint tracking and birth& death certificates. E-Government also expanded to conduct transactions with business partners such as suppliers, vendors and contractors. However, the other side of the E-government coin was not obvious, which is the monitoring from people to all government agencies while conducting transactions, monetary expenditure, recruitment, promotions and all other official business and activities.
Introduction: Traditional e-government is concerned with providing electronic services to citizens such as paying bills and violations online, applying for licenses and permits, road maps and geographical information systems, and some organized government information services. With what the world witnesses recently in the middle east revolutions, and the many accusations for government officials of corruptions, collection billions of dollars illegally, and mistreatment of citizens in many aspects of life, it has became the time that the concept of e-government expand to monitor and system all aspects related to government, its agencies and all its officials and workers.

Case Study about Factors Influencing on Online Shopping Attitude and Intention of Mongolian Consumers
Abstract: The purpose of this study was to investigate Mongolian consumer perception of online shopping, as well as the factors influencing on their attitude toward online shopping and their effect on their intention toward online shopping. Sample of this study included online shopping consumers of Mongolian. The study used e-survey to collect data with 107 (10.7%) valid data. The regression analysis was used to analysis the relationship between dependent and independent variables, and discovered mediation. The results of this study found that consumer innovativeness, perceived benefits and perceived risk are important determining factors influencing online shopping.
Introduction: E-commerce referred to the buying and selling of products, services, that through electronic network. Online shopping was one of the most important activities of E-commerce. Online shopping activity was broadly defined, included finding online retailers and products, searching for product information, selecting payment options, communicating with other consumers, and purchasing products or services (Cai & Cude, 2008). Many online retail outlets made a noticeable effort to reach Mongolian consumers, but most of them have suffered loss and have detracted their investment because of insufficient customer base. Therefore, the online shopping behavior of Mongolian consumers needed to reveal. keep reading..
Study about Importance of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) in Making a Heathy Information Society: Ethiope East Local Government Area of Delta State, Nigeria
Introduction: There is widespread research interest in information and communication technologies (ICTs). According to Crede & Mansell (1998), ICTs are crucially important for sustainable development in developing countries. Thioune (2003) notes that for the past two decades most developed countries have witnessed significant changes that can be traced to ICTs. These multi-dimensional changes have been observed in almost all aspects of life: economics, education, communication, and travel. In a technologydriven society, getting information quickly is important for both sender and receiver. ICTs have made it possible to quickly find and distribute information.
An information society is one that makes the best possible use of ICTs. Martin (1995) supports this view by describing it as a society in which the quality of life, as well as prospects for social change and economic development, depend increasingly upon information and its exploitation. In such a society, living standards, patterns of work and leisure, the education system, and marketplace are all influenced by advances in information and knowledge. This is evidenced by an increasing array of information intensive products and services. keep reading
Case Study about Requirement Engineering meets Security: Modelling Secure Electronic Transactions
Abstract. Computer Security is one of today’s hot topic and the need for conceptual models of security features have brought up a number of proposals ranging from UML extensions to novel conceptual models. What is still missing, however, are models that focus on high-level security requirements, without forcing the modeler to immediately get down to security mechanisms. The modeling process itself should make it clear why encryption, authentication or access control are necessary, and what are the tradeos, if they are selected.
Introduction: Devambu and Stubblebine introduced with these words their ICSE article on security and software engineering. The article marked a surfacing need in the IT community: security is not just about securing protocols and communication lines, it is also about software. Indeed, the need of securing software is even more pressing than the need of securing communication. Almost no attack has been reported in the literature where hackers harvesting credit card numbers by snooping communication lines, whereas exploits of software security bugs are constantly among the headlines. keep reading on Electronic Transactions
A Case Study about Factors Influencing Citizens Adoption of e-Government Services in the Developing World
Abstract: Developing countries have established promising e-Government initiatives with the objective of enhancing the accessibility of government services and information for their citizens. However, governments tend to design and launch online services based on their understanding of what citizens need, surprisingly, without actually measuring what increases citizens’ willingness to adopt web-enabled services. Governments must first understand variables that influence citizens’ adoption of e-Government in order to take them into account when delivering services online.
Introduction: The last decade witnessed a revolution in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). This revolution has not only changed the daily life of people but also the characteristics of the interaction between governments and citizens. Such changes, in turn, are quickly being transformed into new forms of government, namely, eGovernment. By the early/mid 1990’s the USA, Australia, some European Union (EU) countries together with other countries who were applying New Public Management (NPM), have been early adopters of eGovernment programmes By the year 2000, most of countries around the world including some developing counties followed the steps of the world most developed economies and deployed their national e-Government projects.
Case Study about Factors Influencing Citizen Adoption of E-government: A Review and Critical Assessment
Abstract: E-government is a relatively new branch of study within the Information Systems (IS) field. This paper examines the factors influencing adoption of e-government services by citizens. Factors that have been explored in the extant literature present inadequate understanding of the relationship that exists between ‘adopter characteristics’ and ‘behavioral intention’ to use e-government services. These inadequacies have been identified through a systematic and thorough review of empirical studies that have considered adoption of government to citizen (G2C) electronic services by citizens.
Introduction: E-government is a relatively new area of study in the Information Systems (IS) field that is concerned with use of ICT by the government agencies to electronically deliver its services. According to Carter and Belanger (2005) the relationship of government with recipients of its electronic services is characterized as; government to citizen (G2C), government to business (G2B); government to employees (G2E); government to government (G2G). In a comprehensive review of the e-government studies within above mentioned relationships, Titah and Barki (2006) concluded that the most e-government studies fall under five distinct categories that explore the influence of; a) managerial practices, b) individual and organizational characteristics, c) IT characteristics, d) measurement of e-government, e) government subcultures; on e-government adoption. In a G2C context, the focus of this paper is on influence of individual and organizational characteristics on e-government adoption.
Case Study about Factors Influencing the Adoption of E-government Services
Abstract: E-government initiatives are in their infancy in many developing countries. The success of these initiatives is dependent on government support as well as citizens’ adoption of e-government services. This research identified the attitudes and perceptions of the citizens of Kuwait, a developing country, towards the adoption of e-government services. Based on previous research exploring the determinants of the adoption of e-government services using an amended version of the UTAUT model, the study reported here investigates the factors that influence the take-up of such services.
Introduction: E-government has been defined as “the application of information and communications technology (ICT) to transform the efficiency, effectiveness, transparency and accountability of informational and transactional exchanges within government, between governments and government agencies at federal, municipal and locallevels, citizens and businesses; and to empower citizens through access and use of information”. The success of such initiatives is dependent not only government support, but also on citizens’ willingness to accept and adopt those e-government services. Government decision makers, therefore, need an understanding of the factors that would encourage use of electronic rather than more traditional service delivery methods.
