AVG Technologies N.V. (NYSE: AVG), the provider of Internet and mobile security to 146 million active users, will today host a panel discussion at Mobile World Congress. Entitled “Consumer Mobility and Privacy: Monetization without Alienation,” the session will discuss the challenges faced by vendors and service companies as they look to capitalize on consumer mobility whilst maintaining consumer privacy.
With more mobile-connected devices than people now on the earth, companies are faced with a huge commercial opportunity. However, more and more consumers wise up to their movements being tracked through their devices and therefore users are becoming more concerned about their online privacy.
J.R. Smith, CEO of AVG Technologies and co-author of the book Wide Open Privacy: Strategies for the Digital Life, will provide his thoughts on consumers’ mobility and privacy before being joined on a panel by a number of mobile industry experts.
“Privacy is the biggest issue facing the mobile community, and one that must be tackled first and foremost in order to capitalize on mobile growth,” said J.R. Smith, CEO of AVG Technologies. “As mobile technology becomes increasingly sophisticated and companies develop even more features and functionality, ensuring widespread adoption of these new features will rest on consumer attitudes towards privacy. If privacy isn’t addressed, vendors risk consumer backlash. The industry needs to come together to find a self-regulating solution before one with the highest levels of restrictions is imposed on it.”
Today’s session materials will be available at AVG Media Center
The panel session will take place today (25th Feb 2013) between 14:00 – 15:15 in Theatre A of the Hall 8.0 at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.
