Abstract

The goal of this project was to identify the risks of online credit card theft during transit. This included a thorough investigation of methods used by criminals to steal information online, and the technologies that have been developed to prevent such theft. The project team found that while there is a risk of theft, this risk can be diminished. This report recommends certain steps that consumer and retailers should follow in order to minimize the risk involved with online transactions.
