The Future Internet Security vs. Usability
Emerging economies have specific constraints regarding adopting the Future Internet as a business enabler. These constraints cover a wide spectrum of issues including amongst others cultural differences and information literacy levels. Furthermore, crime in all it's facets including white collar crime, have plagued emerging economies resulting in a wide spread distrust for using the Internet to conduct business. It is these constraints that lead the SAP Research CEC Pretoria team to start a research initiative with the aim of searching for ways to integrate usability and information security into the design phase of e-commerce application environments.
