We’re proud to announce that AVG will be the headline sponsor of the Child Internet Safety Summit 2014 which will take place on July 3rd 2014 in Westminster, London.

Attended by senior advisors, government policy officials, businesses and academic child online safety experts, the Child Internet Safety Summit is one of the world’s leading conferences focused on making the internet a safer place for children.

Now in its second year, the day-long event will be attended by over 300 education and online safety professionals and features keynote sessions from industry leaders including Peter Davies, the Chief Executive Officer at the Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) and John Carr, The UK Government Advisor on Online Child Safety.

We’re delighted to confirm that AVG will deliver the opening keynote session addressing the online safety issues that have been pushed to the forefront of the news agenda in the past year. In addition, AVG executives will also host a series of interactive seminars which will explore themes such as online privacy, tracking, sharing information safely and protecting personal data.

“Since sponsoring the Child Internet Safety Summit last year the online child safety debate has moved on leaps and bounds,” said Tony Anscombe, senior security evangelist at AVG Technologies.

“As Government officials make steps towards making the internet a safer more regulated place for children, our main concern is ensuring that parents and education professionals understand the real world implications of these legislative changes. We are determined to guide parents through these changes and help them make sense of their child’s online world and are pleased that the Child Internet Safety Summit will give us a platform to do this.”
