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:

One of the biggest challenges with adopting a DevOps mentality is: new applications are easily adapted to cloud-native, microservice-based, or containerized architectures - they can be built for them - but old applications need complex refactoring. On the other hand, these new technologies can require relearning or adapting new, oftentimes more complex, methodologies and tools to be ready for production.

Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust. Once cloud is part of an enterprise stack, it’s unclear who has responsibility for the protection of applications, services, and data. When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...
