Today ExchangeWire released the first global study of the perceptions of malware and malvertising in the digital advertising ecosystem. The research and accompanying report were created in partnership with The Media Trust, the world’s leading media verification, malware protection, and advertising quality assurance platform.
The results will be revealed and discussed later today at an event in London later today.
From the Forward:
The digital advertising ecosystem is in a state of crisis, with many questioning its security. Each week bears witness to another media story regarding malware-laden ads infecting devices to cause harm to consumers. The presence of malware in the digital environment is no longer a topic relegated to advertising professionals – it’s become a mainstream and global issue.
Each year the number of ad-delivered malware infections increases, with The Media Trust detecting a year-over-year doubling in growth for the past several years. Clearly, malware is not new, which presents an interesting question: What do digital advertising professionals think about malware?
This study provides insight into the opinions of agencies, ad tech providers and publishers across several of the world’s largest publishing markets. In general, most are aware of the malvertising risks in their environments and almost everyone agrees it’s on the rise. However, there are some surprising results, and several opinions do not correlate with industry data:
• 50%+ believe malware is less of a problem on mobile
• US and UK publishers feel malware is a bigger issue for ecommerce than publisher/media websites
• Industry professionals believe 72% of malware exists on non-premium sites
• 20% of publishers believe their websites’ are safe from the constant threat of malware

- Building the best client-agency evaluation systemOnce upon a time, client-agency evaluations were merely 'nice to have'. But in recent years, structural changes in the industry have caused the evaluation process to become business critical. Apart from digitisation, and the fragmentation of the industry, one of the most fundamental changes to the marketing industry in recent years has been the increased involvement of marketing procurement professionals in negotiating these high-value contracts. They are used to using robust quantitative data to back up discretionary payments. Today’s marketers and their communications partners need an accurate and reliable basis more than ever on which to determine bonuses, some of which ... read more2 days ago

With Black Lives Matter finally starting to get the momentum it deserves, I’ve been heartened to see so many companies take a stand when it comes to investing in brand-safe environments. It matters just as much where a company advertises, as what it has to say. The belief that context matters – ... read more2 days ago
