London, England (CLN) – According to eMarketer, business-to-consumer (B2C) ecommerce sales have grown by 21.1 percent and have reached more than $1 trillion in 2012. It is forecasted that B2C sales will increase by 18.3 percent in 2013 to approximately $1.298 trillion worldwide. The Asia-Pacific region is expected to surpass North America as the number 1 market for ecommerce sales.
While these figures are quite promising for businesses engaged in ecommerce, it is also important to note that cybercrime stands at $388 billion and is 100 times more than the annual expenditure of UNICEF. Nearly one million adults become cybercrime victims every day. Forty-four percent of all online adults have experienced cybercrime last year.
