DALLAS, Feb. 6, 2014 – According to Trend Micro Incorporated’s (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704) 2013 annual threat roundup report, “Cashing in on Digital Information,” security breaches, cyber criminals, and organized attacks made it nearly impossible to keep personal and financial data private. Large-scale attacks on privacy and security are detailed in the report that covers online bank hacking, mobile threats, infrastructure attacks, and others.

This annual report provides an insight into the vulnerabilities of today’s technology that is rapidly becoming interconnected and “smart.” Unfortunately, the new technology being embraced may give more opportunities for criminals to thrive, as they evolve their cyber-attacks and endanger business, including online banks and retailers, while moving closer to homes and individuals through mobile technology.

“Last year encompassed major security breaches, increased malware, and mobile threats that impacted people from all walks of life around the world,” said Raimund Genes, CTO, Trend Micro. “Now more than ever, consumers and corporations alike must be diligent in understanding their vulnerabilities, and what should be done from a security perspective to better protect personal data and guard against compromised privacy. While this report details the threat landscape of 2013, more importantly it explains how these threats will continue to evolve and what should be done to mitigate the negative impact.”
