Security is one of the fastest-growing concerns in e-commerce and intranets. This chapter describes a number of attacks that hackers may attempt against companies and the methods used to combat each attack. The chapter also describes integrated security systems (ISSs), which automatically secure communication between two parties, protecting them from a variety of network attacks. Finally, the chapter describes potential risks from lawsuits if a company fails to adequately secure its systems and losses result.
