White Ops CEO Michael Tiffany to Present at IAB Annual Leadership Meeting to Address Fraud in Digital Advertising

Chief Scientist Dan Kaminsky Selected to Speak at AGC Partners' West Coast InfoSec and Emerging Growth Conference and RSA Conference's Innovation Sandbox

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 02/10/14 -- White Ops, a pioneer in online fraud detection, today announced that White Ops CEO Michael Tiffany will participate in a Town Hall discussion moderated by President, MAGNA Global North America and Mediabrands Kristi Argyilan and Executive Chair, sovrn Holdings Inc., Founder, Federated Media John Battelle at the Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB) Annual Leadership Meeting being held February 9-11, 2014 at the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort in Desert Springs, CA.

The IAB Annual Leadership Meeting is the central venue for senior voices in the advertising-publishing-technology ecosystem to discuss and debate building a profitable future for marketing and media. As the industry has gone through -- and continues to go through -- seismic shifts, participants will tackle how to transform their strategies, structure and capabilities to be successful. In December 2013, the IAB and its Traffic of Good Intent Task Force, which White Ops was a part of, released "Best Practices - Traffic Fraud: Reducing Risk to Exposure" to meet this challenge of fraudulent traffic that has soared to critical levels across the digital advertising ecosystem.

The IAB Annual Leadership Meeting:
Town Hall Session 4, "Fraud and Piracy -Can We Fix the Open Digital Advertising Supply Chain?"

At least 22 percent of digital display advertising traffic worldwide is driven by bots, leading to an estimated $6-10 billion loss to advertising fraud alone each year and it takes most currently available software an average of 54 days to detect newly released malware and only 40-50 percent of malware can be detected by conventional methods. White Ops has created a new and highly sophisticated anti-fraud security solution that works across the spectrum of online business, including the entire advertising ecosystem, from the smallest brand agency to the largest exchange, Enterprise systems, e-commerce, finance and Big Data companies. White Ops introduces the fundamental metric that matters: "Cost per Human," the real cost of reaching humans that will ultimately buy products or services -- not bots, which do nothing but falsely inflate metrics.

Meet White Ops at Upcoming Events:
AGC's 10th Annual West Coast InfoSec and Technology Growth Conference
Chief Scientist Dan Kaminsky will present at the highly acclaimed InfoSec Day at the AGC Partners' West Coast InfoSec and Emerging Growth Conference on Monday, February 24at 9:00-9:15 a.m. PST at the Westin San Francisco Market Street, San Francisco, CA.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
What sort of WebRTC based applications can we expect to see over the next year and beyond? One way to predict development trends is to see what sorts of applications startups are building.

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Sum...
As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications? To answer this, first we have to look and explore the security models of the technologies that IoT is founded upon. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nevi Kaja, a Research Engineer at Ford Motor Company, will discuss some of the security challenges of the IoT infrastructure and relate how these aspects impact Smart Living. The material will be delivered i...
Apache Hadoop is emerging as a distributed platform for handling large and fast incoming streams of data. Predictive maintenance, supply chain optimization, and Internet-of-Things analysis are examples where Hadoop provides the scalable storage, processing, and analytics platform to gain meaningful insights from granular data that is typically only valuable from a large-scale, aggregate view. One architecture useful for capturing and analyzing streaming data is the Lambda Architecture, represent...
As organizations realize the scope of the Internet of Things, gaining key insights from Big Data, through the use of advanced analytics, becomes crucial.

These storage systems will act as “smart systems” provide in-place analytics that speed discovery and enable businesses to quickly derive meaningf...

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation. In her session at @DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, of F5 Networks, explored HTTP/1 and HTTP/2 along with Microservices to illustrate why a collaborative culture between Dev, Ops, and the Network is critical to ensuring success.
