Ways to Think About Solving Digital Ad Fraud Dr. Augustine Fou http://linkd.in/augustinefou acfou @mktsci .com March 2014 -1- Augustine Fou
Pay Off Credit Cards Financial advisors always recommend paying off high interest credit cards first, BEFORE figuring out where else to invest the money. The savings of 18% - 33% is immediate and guaranteed, while the returns from other investing is not. The same applies to solving digital ad fraud – once the waste from fraud is minimized or eliminated then the other optimization and targeting enhancements can go to work. -2- Augustine Fou
Fighting Cancer Solving digital ad fraud first is like removing a visible cancerous mass before it metastasizes and spreads. If it isn’t removed as soon as possible, it continues to grow and evolve and becomes even harder to beat. The same applies to solving digital ad fraud – once the visible cancerous mass is removed, then other techniques can be applied to track down malignant cells that may have spread (other forms of sophisticated bot-generated fraud). -3- Augustine Fou
Flu Outbreak Digital ad fraud is like viruses in biologic systems – 1) they are good at hiding by pretending to be other things, 2) they leverage the cells’ own tools and food supply to multiply, 3) they can morph and evolve to stay head, and 4) they can attack en masse and bring an entire body to its knees. Fighting digital ad fraud should also mimic biologic defenses – 1) immune cells distinguish antigens from the body’s own cells and attack them, 2) immune response is developed and evolved to recognize the same bad guys again and prevent future attacks. -4- Augustine Fou
Credit Card Fraud Source: Business Insider, March 5, 2014 Digital ad fraud is like losses due to credit card fraud. Banks/issuers usually have to “eat” the cost to protect their cardholders. In the case of digital ad fraud, the key is to NOT do business with known criminals (don’t place ads on known fraudulent sites). -5- Augustine Fou
