Interview summary

White Ops may have forecast a downswing in the number of dollars US advertisers will lose to fraud in 2017, but make no mistake: The war on fraud is far from over. eMarketer’s Lauren Fisher spoke with Michael Tiffany, the ad verification and fraud prevention firm’s co-founder and president, about the prime ad fraud targets for 2018—mobile apps and influencer marketing.
