AVG was recently nominated for the 2011 Small Business Influencer Award! It is an award which “honors companies, organizations and people who have made a significant impact on the North American small business market.” AVG is certainly deserving of this honor, with their extensive efforts to help small businesses, such as AVG’s partnership with SCORE, a small business counseling service, to provide small businesses with educational resources and tools to help keep them safe online. After all, according to a recent USA Today article, “Hackers target small business websites because they know those companies “do not have the resources for sophisticated security measures.” It’s certainly not new information that small businesses are a common target for hackers and other cyber-criminals. Through the use of tools like AVG’s free Online Security Audit, small businesses can measure the threats to their company and with AVG’s extensive user education efforts on all fronts they can come to better understand the specific threats they face and how to mitigate them. It’s easy to see why AVG was nominated!
