“The UK is now one of the leading e-commerce economies in the world, more than 50% of small businesses conduct transactions over the internet on a regular basis. This is why we are working with industry to ensure that people have trust and confidence in online services through initiatives such as the www.getsafeonline.org website which provides businesses with advice on protecting their employees and business.
