AVG Technologies Addresses Tech Privacy at 2015 International CES Lifelong Tech Summit and also Participates in Family Tech Summit

AMSTERDAM and SAN FRANCISCO – December 11, 2014 – AVG Technologies N.V. (NYSE: AVG), the online security company™ for 188 million active users, today announced it will speak at the Lifelong Tech and exhibit at the Family Tech Summits at the 2015 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) being held January 6-9, 2015 in Las Vegas.

Highlighting the company’s participation is AVG Chief Marketing Officer Judith Bitterli’s Tech Talk on Jan. 6 on “The Privacy Fear Factor,” a guide to essentials for online safety.

“Feeling safe, comfortable and confident online, especially in our increasingly connected and mobile world, can seem overwhelming if you don’t have the right tools in place,” said Bitterli, who regularly blogs on tech topics for Boomers at AVG Now. “The 50+ audience wants to be connected, engaged, informed and entertained. But privacy has been a major issue for them in fully utilizing the Internet – which has become an essential part of all of our lives. We must address the these issues so we can safely access the services we need — from health records to financial and social sites.”

As part of the presentation, Bitterli will share insights around Boomers’ tech usage and attitudes about privacy and protection issues, including findings from AVG’s new Digital Diaries Boomer research study.

The Lifelong Tech Summit (formerly the Silver Summit) looks at products and services that impact the lives of Boomers – which accounts for approximately 78 million US citizens (450 million worldwide) born between 1946 and 1964. This year’s Summit is designed to showcase the latest products and solutions for lifelong learning, enhancing and augmenting sensory experience, smart home control, healthy aging, and more.
