Entrust and the Anti-Phishing Working Group Discuss Why New On-line Threats
Require New Security Approaches

Entrust, Inc., a world-leader in securing digital identities and information, today announced that Chris Voice, Vice President of Technology at Entrust, and Peter Cassidy, Secretary General of the Anti-Phishing Working Group, during an on-line seminar at 12:30 p.m. Eastern on May 11th, will discuss trends and best-practices for countering phishing and pharming attacks. This Web seminar discussion will be moderated by Frank Derfler, VP of Market Experts Group at Ziff Davis Media.

On-line identity theft is a growing global concern for all organizations that use the Internet to streamline business process and provide services to their customers. According to IDC's 2005 Financial Insights Consumer Banking Survey, close to 60% of U.S. consumers sampled in January 2005 expressed that they were worried about identity theft, and close to 6% admitted to switching banks to reduce their risk of becoming a victim of identity theft. In addition to the proliferation of phishing scams and spoofed Websites, a new and more subtle threat is gaining ground: pharming.

In this Web seminar, you will learn:

* What is phishing and pharming and how it is affecting your industry
* How phishing and pharming attacks are perpetrated
* How to help prevent these attacks from impacting your customers and partners
* How to increase your customers' confidence in online services
* What solutions are available for your organization
