resulting in significant financial losses and reputational damage. In this context, E-
commerce website security has become a critical concern for consumers, 
businesses, and regulators alike.

India, providing insights into the measures that businesses are taking to protect 
sensitive personal and financial information. The analysis will assess the 
effectiveness of various security measures, such as firewalls, SSL encryption, and 
two-factor authentication, and consider the vulnerabilities and threats posed to E-
commerce websites, including phishing attacks, XSS attacks, and SQL injection 
The study will also examine the legal and regulatory frameworks in place for E-
commerce website security in India and internationally, highlighting the 
Information Technology (Reasonable Security Practices and Procedures and

E-commerce website security in India, emphasizing the need for proactive security 
measures, compliance with legal and regulatory frameworks, and employee 
education on best security practices. By addressing these key issues, this study 
seeks to contribute to the development of a more secure E-commerce ecosystem in 
India, building consumer trust and safeguarding sensitive information.
