Online blues

The RSA conference kicks off in a couple of hours and already the news has started.

There’s a tendency for those at the bleeding edge of security to scoff over security fears – after all the right browser and intelligent passwords can protect against a lot of online crime. But if the results from the latest survey on ecommerce are anything to go by consumers are getting worried.

This is a serious problem. The internet is the most important technological innovation since the printing press, not only for linking disparate world communities but also for ecommerce. If people turn away from online business we’ll have lost a great asset and the world will be a poorer place in every sense of the word.
