A Conference About Actionable Solutions

The rapid growth of data-driven, digital advertising has presented marketers with unprecedented new opportunities to better understand and connect with their audiences. Simultaneously, that growth has given rise to fraud, malware, security and viewability concerns as marketers look to ensure that their advertising campaigns are running cleanly, safely and being seen by actual people.
