SAN JOSE, Calif. – June 26, 2013 – 41st Parameter, the global leader in securing online relationships, today released a report – The Growing Threat of Cyber Crime: Five Trends and Takeaways – that provides insights and solutions to the five most imminent cyber crime threats. With the incessant drive to better serve the digital consumer through online and mobile channels, cyber crime is on the rise, posing huge financial risks to financial institutions and their consumers.

In addition to the report, 41st Parameter has also created an infographic that illustrates the top five cyber threats.

"The increase in large-scale data breaches and high-volume, coordinated fraud attacks are byproducts of the industrialization of fraud driven by the movement of services online," said Eli Katz, vice president of financial industry solutions at 41st Parameter.
