Date: December 22, 2006

ChosenSecurity, Inc., a leading specialist in identity verification and security services, today announced three essential steps for protecting customer communications from damaging phishing incidents, in response to the rising number of phishing attacks.

As a result certain industries, including the banking and financial sectors, cannot effectively employ e-mail as a communication tool without recipients doubting its authenticity.
