Electronic commerce (EC) over the Internet is a new way of conducting business and is growing exponentially. We believe that the expansion of EC is creating a series of risks that need to be addressed. For those who want to conduct EC, it is necessary to carry out a thorough risk analysis before implementation. Although risk analysis has been widely applied and used in the context of financial and engineering problems, it has seldom been adopted in EC development. In this paper, a model of risk analysis in EC development using fuzzy set is proposed. The model assists EC practitioners and decision-makers to formalize the kinds of thinking required in assessing and understanding the current risk environment of their EC project in a more nature way.
