Measuring the Benefit of Enforcing High-Level Security Policies
To establish an e-commerce financial transaction, participants should provide personal information to their trading
partners. While it may simplify repetitive transactions with the partner, keeping the personal information increases the
likelihood of identity theft causing direct or indirect damage. This study introduces quantitative analysis based on Demand-
Supply curve for the damage caused by leakages of personal identification information and shows the differences by
adopting high-level security compliances. Though it may require more cost on security, managers can make a decision on it
with the estimated benefit for the additional investment.
