41st Parameter to Expose the Hidden Risks of Malware in Upcoming Webinar

Session Will Review Types of Malware, What to Do Once Fraudsters Have Taken Control

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 4, 2013) -  41st Parameter, a part of Experian, today announced it will host a webinar, "Demystifying Malware: Understanding the True Risks," on Wednesday, November 13 at 10:00 a.m. PT. The webinar will examine the continually evolving malware threat landscape and what institutions need to do to ensure their customers and their business interests are protected.

"As malware continues to spread with 200,000 new strains detected daily, it justifiably is attracting an increased amount of media attention," said David Britton, vice president of industry solutions, 41st Parameter, a part of Experian. "Although the problem seems to be a moving target, the focus of bank and security professionals more importantly needs to be on preventing unauthorized access to an account by devices infected with malware rather than focusing all their energy trying to keep up with ever changing malware issues."

Topics to be covered during the webinar on Malware will include:

  • A comprehensive malware overview
  • Anti-virus vs. fraud detection
  • Attack methods
  • 4st Parameter's approach to stopping malware-driven fraud
