In its infancy, e-commerce was all about building a Web site, attracting "eyeballs" and
capturing orders. But within a few years, with millions invested and no profitability in
sight, many e-tailers were forced to close their virtual doors. Now that e-commerce has
moved beyond the shakeout stage, what can we expect to see as the industry gathers steam
again? Phase two e-commerce players are investing in real-time capabilities to manage
orders, GartnerG2 analyst Geri Spieler told the E-Commerce Times.

I like the theme of the article. However, since the web has a large number of medium and small businesses, I believe that the subject needs to address how Phase Two will affect these businesses that have been or will be looking to the Web as a medium of selling their products and services.

What was your initial reaction to news of the Colonial Pipeline cyberattack?
It demonstrates that all critical infrastructure sectors are at high risk of disruption by cybercriminals.
Everyone will be paying for this attack in the form of higher energy costs.
Governments need to work more closely with private industries to protect networks for the sake of public safety.
It's a global problem. An international alliance must be formed to hold the perpetrators accountable and prevent future attacks.
