Contextualising the special issue The growth of e-commerce worldwide has enabled many organisations to deliver products and services using innovative, efficient, fast and cost effective business models. The digital
economy continues to grow and makes a considerable contribution to the world economy. However, this relatively rapid growth has also caused even faster growth in cybercrimes, mainly due to the ease of committing these crimes, lucrative returns and the slowness of prevention efforts. Cybercrimes represent an existential threat to e-commerce and the need to effectively control their growth is urgent. As the relevant legislation and capabilities of
law enforcement agencies is failing to catch up with the fast changing nature of crimes, businesses need to adopt innovative preventative strategies. This special issue focuses on how both large organisations and SMEs are making effective use of cybercrime prevention strategies. It also presents new research approaches and methodologies contributing to the theory and practice in this important emerging research domain.
