Fraud and Hackers are the main one. I wouldnt call spam a security risk but you have to watch out for that as well.
You can get a SSL which is a certificate to show that your server is secure. But this can cost quit a bit of money

go with a decent merchant provider like worldpay or other companys most of the time they will supply the SSL to protect you againest alot of online crime.

Well i'll be the honest one of the group. No matter what you do your server will never be 100% secure. Do what you can, get the SSL and if you own your own server make SURE you keep it updated (ALL the software pine, bash etc) If you got a firewall you should set it as well to its highest security settings just allowing you, and your staff to enter via the ssh port, and open the web port keep everything else closed. That is the best advice anyone can give

I guess the number 1 issue you have to watch out for is fake orders...(Someone steals someone's credit card info and places an order with you using the stole CC info.)
You have to basically investigate every order that is processed by you and your company.
If a client's billing info is from the US, but their IP address originates from Asia, that has raise some redflags.
