EcomRISK.org : A site to classify and organize the risks of performing business on the Internet
Aidan S. Marcuss
Dartmouth TR2001-403

Abstract: As the use of the Internet and other computer networks to transact business grows, there is an ever increasing need for those taking part in those transactions to understand the risks of doing so. While there are many web sites that have created valuable databases of specific vulnerabilities for certain types of hardware and software, there is a lack of focus on attempting to analyze the interaction of businesses, their systems, computer networks, and their customers and the risks that are created by either intended or unattended interactions. EcomRISK.org is a web site that presents a clear taxonomy to classify these risks and provides other features to aid in the general discussion of e-commerce risk. The site, and the taxonomy at the center of it, creates a database of these incidents so they can be clearly searched. This paper discusses the creation of EcomRISK.org, from vision to birth.
