Avast CEO, Vince Steckler, is part of a security expert roundtable discussing cybersecurity in our everyday lives.

Avast CEO, Vince Steckler, joined a panel of top security experts for a roundtable discussion about cybersecurity in our everyday lives. As technology gets more convenient and seamlessly integrated into our home and work lives, it also becomes more convenient for digital thieves. There are so many openings for the cybercrook to penetrate, that we have much to think about and prepare for. In a roundtable discussion put together by Mediaplanet for today's Home Safety and Security supplement (PDF), Mr. Steckler and other experts answer these questions:

  1. What can I do to improve my home network security?
  2. How do I begin to protect my kids online?
  3. What are the motives behind identify theft?
  4. What is the future of cybersecurity?
Avast recently partnered with MediaplanetUSA in their just released Safety and Security campaign which seeks to raise awareness of pressing home security issues we’re facing today such as burglaries, preventable injuries, and online safety.
