IntroductionAlthough the e-banking field has been found Information Systems literature since the mid-1990s, there is still a lack of advanced research into banking security adoption and associated organizational issues. In addition, there is a shortage in case studies surveying the real experience of firms and organizations in deploying e-banking security. As e-banking is an IT product for development and evolution, this sort of gap in the advanced research makes some sensitive issues and challenges for banking sector, particularly these that currently develop e-banking security because the weaknesses and actual limitations in subject to this field normally mean difficulties in planning and developing e-banking security measures and controls.The use of the Internet as a main distribution channel raises the necessity of securing e-banking since it becomes a vital issue to the environment and could make organizations more vulnerable to system attacks and threats. Although there are several techinques and methods to security as a whole (for example, checklists, risk analysis, formal methods and soft approaches – Backhouse and Dhillon, 1996; Siponen, 2001) whose value is evident – there is an expectation that security can be more efficiently managed if the concentration goes beyond technical-oriented solutions (James, 1996; Siponen, 2001; Dhillon and Torkzadeh, 2006).E-banking can not only offer various benefits to customers in terms of ease and cost of transactions, but it also poses new challenges for banks in supervising their financial systems and in designing and implementing necessary security measures and controls. Therefore, understanding security communication in e-banking issues is important for senior management because it would assist them enhance their approach to e-banking security. This handbook book addresses this issue by reporting exploratory case studies about developing and implementing security in e-banking. Particularly, this handbook of advanced research aims to explore how e-banking security measures and controls takes place within the bank, what are the standards and procedures that play an important role to the success of e-banking security and what key lessons come out of their experience which could be generalized.This book also looks to discuss and address the difficulties and challenges that banks have faced in implementing security techniques, technologies and applications. The editor will seek chapters that address different aspects of e-banking adoption, ranging from Phishing of Banking Information, Pharming of Banking Websites, Adaptive Authentication in Banking, “Watering Hole” Attacks, Malware-Based Attacks, Zeus Trojan, Mobile Banking Security, Identity Theft, and related topics.
ObjectiveThis comprehensive and timely publication aims to be an essential reference source, building on the available literature in the field of e-banking security while providing for further research opportunities in this dynamic field. It is hoped that this text will provide the resources necessary for policy makers, technology developers and managers to adopt and implement security techniques and technologies in developing banks across the globe. Target AudiencePolicy makers, academicians, researchers, advanced-level students, technology developers, bank officers and government officials will find this text useful in furthering their research exposure to pertinent topics in e-banking security and assisting in furthering their own research efforts in this field.Recommended TopicsContributors are welcome to submit chapters on the following topics relating to Electronic Government use, implementation, and adoption in developing countries:·         Phishing of Banking Information·         Pharming of Banking Websites·         Adaptive Authentication in Banking·         “Watering Hole” Attacks·         Malware-Based Attacks·         Zeus Trojan·         Mobile Banking Security·         Identity Theft·         Case Studies on Securing Electronic Banking Use·         Legal Considerations in Electronic Banking Security·         Ethical Considerations in Electronic Banking Security·         Customers Perceptions of Electronic Banking Security·         Advanced Electronic Banking Security Technologies, Approaches and Methods·         Use of Cloud Concept in Electronic Banking Security·         New Directions in Electronic Banking Security
