Websense Security Labs has joined the Financial Services Technology Consortium (FSTC) counter-phishing initiative to address the issues of phishing scams throughout the financial services industry.

The FSTCs counter-phishing initiative focuses on defining technical and operating requirements of financial institutions for counter-phishing measures. In addition, FSTC works to clarify the infrastructure fit, requirements, and impact of technologies when deployed in concert with customer education, enforcement, and other industry initiatives. Research from Websense Security Labs has also been cited in many information technology and security publications regarding its findings on phishing scams, fraud-based websites and malicious mobile code. In addition to the FSTC, Websense Security Labs is also actively contributing analysis to combat online threats and phishing attacks with the Anti-Phishing Working Group (APWG). The APWG recently published Websense Security Labs research and statistics on phishing attacks that occurred in June and July.
