Welcome to AVG’s Policy blog! I’m Siobhan MacDermott, AVG’s Chief Policy Officer and I’ll be posting articles and commentary on global policy issues that are relevant and important for you to know about, hopefully in a way that makes it easier to understand. I’ve been working in the mobile and security industries for almost 25 years, and education has become a passion of mine. I hope you will be able to learn about these important policy issues, but also be able to share them with the people you care about and discuss them.
I’m a true global citizen, a parent and am incredibly passionate about policy decisions that could have an effect on what we may be able to do online, how our kids are treated and what data is collected about us.
Through this blog, I’m also hoping that you’ll also be able to bring articles and issues to the table that I can talk about from a more “expert” point of view too. We’ll discuss everything from policy affecting your privacy – to whether the United Nations should regulate the Internet. If there’s something on your mind, please share it and we’ll discuss it. You can also follow me @AVGLittleBird.
