Avast

About our SID activities

Avast will be speaking out over the radio to help bring attention to the issue of phishing. According to Avast research, 71% of people cannot identify a fraudulent website in a ‘spot the difference' test. The research also asked consumers if they had ever fallen victim to phishing personally; with 14% saying they had, but a larger proportion admitting they weren't sure if they had; perhaps highlighting a lack of understanding on what phishing looks like and how to spot the signs of an attack.

 

What we are doing to support the SID 2020 slogan of "Together for a better internet"…

For Avast, the word together is key. Together as a community, we are stronger, our voice is stronger and while coming together with various companies and organisations serving a common cause and mission, we achieve more. Avast is dedicated to delivering a safer internet for all.
