Abstract -
Small business e-commerce sites are very good target for cyber-attack. They do not have sufficient resources required to deal with the attack. The extensive use of e-commerce websites create new ways for both image and brands to be attacked. Security of e-commerce websites is essential for compliance with laws and regulations as well as gaining and maintaining the trust of stakeholders, partners and customers. Attacks on customer’s sensitive information have the adverse effect of decreasing the customer’s faith on online transactions, which happens in e-commerce network. In this paper, we propose a dynamic transmission model (Sp-I-Q-Sp) of malicious objects in the e-commerce network and study its dynamic behaviours. Numerical method is employed to solve and simulate the system of equations developed. In this context, we give the threshold for determining whether the virus dies out completely. Then, we study the existence of equilibria, and analyse their local asymptotic stability. Results of numerical simulations are obtained using MATLAB. Interpretation of the model yields interesting exposures.
