{Security challenges in}


B2B e-commerce companies, such as Shopify are highly susceptible to cyberattacks. A point-of-sale (PoS) breach grants attackers access to sensitive financial and personal information. Upgrading systems and transferring customer data to new platforms also heightens vulnerability during the transition, risking data loss, financial harm, and customer trust.


Data breaches pose significant security risks for B2C e-commerce platforms like Amazon or Etsy, as they can result in unauthorized access to sensitive customer information. Additionally, fraud remains a major concern, with hackers and cybercriminals frequently targeting e-commerce platforms to exploit financial resources and obtain personal data.


C2C e-commerce platforms, such as eBay, and Depop, or Vinted face similar security risks that threaten the integrity of their platforms. Data breaches can expose sensitive customer information to unauthorized parties. Additionally, these platforms are particularly vulnerable to fraudulent activities and phishing scams elicitating card details of users.
