  • The State of Digital Ad Fraud -- Terminology, landscape and trends
  • The advertiser and publisher perspective -- Top issues and concerns including Non-Human Traffic
  • Tools of the trade and best practices -- The different technologies and approaches to detecting and mitigating digital ad fraud while validating premium ad inventory
