The Joint Industry Committee for Web Standards (JICWEBS) has today highlighted significant progress in their efforts to tackle online brand safety and ad fraud.
Working to develop and secure a safer online environment for advertisers, the body has awarded a further 11 certificates for brand safety and two further certificates relating to reducing online ad fraud.
Bethan Crockett, Brand Safety and Digital Risk Director at GroupM EMEA, says, “GroupM UK welcomes increasing participation in both JICWEBS Brand Safety and Fraud Protection Best Practice Principles Certification. It is critical for our clients to know proactive steps are being taken to protect digital supply chain integrity.”
Richard Foan, JICWEBS chair, says, “This recent surge in independently audited certifications for brand safety and anti-fraud shows that the increased levels of trust and transparency that buyers demand are being injected into the digital ad trading supply chain. It also gives buyers a wider array of partners to choose from when considering who is more likely to protect their investment in digital."
ISBA's Marketing Services Manager, David Ellison noted, “Brand safety and ad fraud are both major concerns for advertisers, who will welcome more suppliers gaining independently audited certification. This development helps to give advertisers more confidence in the digital supply chain and we look forward to even more suppliers receiving certification.”
