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

- The FCC paves way for greater media consolidation as it repeals 'stale' broadcast ownership rulesThe US Federal Communications Commission (FCC), led by chairman Ajit Pai, has repealed a series of broadcast ownership regulations that could pave the way for greater consolidation in the media industry. The regulations were first put in place in the 1970s to ensure that a diversity of voices and opinions could be heard on the air or in print. But Pai believes those rules were keeping the media industry out of the digital age since they don't take into account how the media industry has changed over the years, which has seen traditional media outlets facing rising competition from the likes of blogs, websites and ... read more10 hours ago

With the theme of 'story-living', we set out to explore what experience marketing means and why it’s going to become increasingly important in the future.
