Abstract: The dynamic nature of threats and vulnerabilities within the e-business environment can impede online functionality, compromise organisational or customer information, contravene security implementations and thereby undermine online customer confidence. To negate these problems, e-business security has to become proactive, by reviewing and continuously improving security to strengthen e-business security measures and policies. This can be accomplished through benchmarking the security measures and policies utilised within the e-business, against recognised Information Technology (IT) and Information Security (IS) security standards.

Keywords: e-business security; security standards; benchmarking; electronic business; security measures; security policies; continuous improvement; information security; computer security.
