First of all. You should make your thread title clear. There are no bitcoin account. Only bitcoin wallet. You should get one if you dont have. Bitcoin is 100%/safe. I have seen any news that bitcoin can be hack directly on network. The owner is responsible for losing their bitcoin. Bitcoin is safe if you are careful keeping it. Malware infected device is a common cause of  losing bitcoin on wallet. You should keep your device (pc or smartphone) clean. Update your antivirus and clean your device regularly.

Bitcoin account is secure but I suggest you download google authenticator application. Were you can create secure pin in your bitcoin account. This is what Im doing also, using 2fa is helping your account to be safe and secure. But, just keep in mind not to save all your hard earn money in one single account only.

If you do your own research you can see that bitcoin is secure and safe but you need also to be very careful because at some point you are responsible with your own bitcoin especially if you store it in your wallet or you use it in transacting online. Using two factor authentication is highly recommended for a more secure bitcoin.

As long you didnt give the important informations regarding on your wallet and you set the maximum protection layers on your account then it would be really hard for it to be hacked but dont get to confident enough and its really better not to store huge funds on a single wallet or if you put huge amounts then you should either use hardware wallets.

it is better to use F2A in your account
if you already use F2A it is very secure and don't the same password your bitcoin account with other account.

No matter how much security measures you take you will be not safe without limits. But if you take at least basic precautios like stronge password, 2F authentication and similar you can diminish the danger. And don't store huge amount of coins just in one wallet and absolutley not on exchangers.

Bitcoin is as secure as any email account, it depends on what wallet you use... As long as the intensity of the security opens and grows over time, there's not much else to do except unlock them all as well as protect your identity.

No matter the risk, there's always threats with anything online. Be sure to never reveal your information as once someone sees the vulnerability it'll always become prone to risk.

yes that is a fact that the security of bitcoin is mostly depend the person who is handling the account if you are properly managing your account then it will remain too much safe but you will manage it carelessly then there is always a risk that your account will hack, you should try not to share your secret information about your secret key and should change it properly for security reasons, so through this way you can keep your bitcoin account more stable.

You should be okay as long as you don't download suspicious files and always keep your desktop clean and malware-free. But

since its an online account, You just enable the 2-factor authentication and don't give any sensitive information to others and it

will be certain that your account is safe but always remember that an online wallet is always hackable.

it depends what kind of threat from a botnet do you percieve as the biggest?
you don't have to worry about bitcoin miners malware,these were popular way back,two-three years ago
they are simply unprofitable now,with the network difficulty too high,an infected pc would earn a fraction of a cent per day for the attacker-there are better ways to exploit botnets
such as DDOS and bruteforcing
in your case DDOS and the ensuing extortion attempt could be a threat,if your business needs to be online 24/7 and without interruptions
botnets can take your site down for a short period of time,but attacks cost money too,so if they botnet owner gets nothing in return
or is met with an adequate DDOS prevention by your hoster or a third party company,he would not spend time and resources
bruteforcing wallets is another threat to consider,but you should never store any substantial amounts of coins online
there are so called hot wallets and cold wallets-cold wallets are offline storages,hot wallets are usually online wallets for day to day operations
always keep your coins in a cold wallet storage
all in all if you just a small e-commerce project,you should worry more about how to make your business profitable rather than about any threats from botnets and hackers
