Information System Security (ISS) And E-Banking: Market Value Perspective (Review Completed - Accepted)
The Internet has played a key role in changing how we interact with other people and how we do business today. As a result of the Internet, electronic commerce has emerged, allowing businesses to more effectively interact with their customers and other corporations inside and outside their industries. One industry that is using this new communication channel to reach its customers is the banking industry. The electronic banking system addresses several emerging trends: customers’ demand for anytime, anywhere service, product time-to-market imperatives and increasingly complex back-office integration challenges. The challenges that oppose electronic banking are the concerns of security and privacy of information. Therefore, understanding the financial value resulting from ISS investments is critically important to organizations focused on protecting service confidentiality, integrity, and availability in order to preserve firm revenues and reputations. On this basis, the aim of this paper is studying the relationship between e-banking investments in ISS and their market value impacts.
