AVG Debates the Impact of Trust on Innovation at the MEF European Consumer Trust Summit
October 19, 2015

The summit will bring together brands, mobile operators, regulators, developers and innovators to examine the business-critical issue of how to foster consumer trust in today’s mobile age.

AMSTERDAM– October 19, 2015 – AVG Technologies N.V. (NYSE: AVG), the online security company™ for more than 200 million active users, today announced that Tony Anscombe, the company’s Senior Security Evangelist, will be participating in a panel debate at the MEF European Consumer Trust Summit on October 20, 2015.

Taking place in London’s Canary Wharf, and open to both MEF members and non-members, the Summit will bring together brands, mobile operators, regulators, developers and innovators to examine the business-critical issue of how to foster consumer trust in today’s mobile age.

This comes as the latest MEF Global Consumer Trust Report ranked trust as the single, largest obstacle to growth in the mobile content and commerce industry – with two-fifths of survey respondents naming a lack of trust as the number one dissuasive factor when downloading items.

Anscombe will be joining representatives from Mozilla, Vodafone, Smart e-Money and CitizenMe to discuss, “Trust as a Driver for Innovation.”

What: Tony Anscombe, AVG Technologies, at the MEF Consumer Trust Summit

When: Afternoon Session (between 14.00-17.00), Tuesday, 20 October 2015

Where: Level 39, Canary Wharf, London

The Consumer Trust Summit forms part of a week of activities from MEF, kicking off with the annual Meffys award gala dinner on 19 October 2015. Now in their twelfth year, the Meffys aim to recognize the most successful and innovative players across the mobile ecosystem. This year, AVG has been shortlisted in the Consumer Trust category for its one-page privacy policy.
