Brand Safety and Data Privacy during a Complex and Disruptive Digital Marketplace

Welcome to a world where the charge “fake news” is rampant, and the financing of the fourth estate -- a bulwark of democracy and informed citizenship --- has itself been digitally disrupted. It is nothing less than vital for brands and publishers, and digital advertising platforms - interest-based and otherwise, to assess how to ensure adequate financing of an independent free press while maintaining brand safety standards, both inside and outside “pay walls and data walls.” We examine a close look at what’s at stake—and how we might best move forward—in an environment where advertising finance is hugely important to diversity in news and opinion. We also examine how privacy protections might be structured to enhance, rather than undermine, this critical aspect of free nations.

The Changing Landscape of Content & Advertising

Trust is earned, not given. Brands engaging with consumers must examine customer experiences and customer journeys, from their advertising experiences onward, to fully ascertain how users view ad and messaging content, so that efforts to bolster consumer trust can be planned for and executed. Our panel will share how, from a brand perspective, how to gain and build -- and in some cases rebuild -- the trust equation, necessary for consumer engagement. Relevance plays a crucial role. We look at the landscape of Content and Advertising and how it is shifting to serve customers with messaging when and where they want.

Privacy for America: A New Paradigm for Federal Consumer Privacy Protection

The time has come for a strong federal privacy law to empower consumers and brands alike in the Information Economy.  We will examine a new paradigm for consumer privacy protection in federal policy -- known as Privacy for America. We’ll examine how such a proposed data regulation framework could affect American consumers and the data economy. Policy experts and facilitators on these fronts share perspectives on how privacy and security public policy -- and a continuing role for self-regulation -- may affect data-driven brand engagement with consumers in such a new policy construct.

Brand Relevance and Growth in a Privacy-First Era

What defines a relevant brand in a Privacy-First Era?  How are relevant brands engaging, surprising and connecting with their customers and clients? In today’s privacy-first era, relevant brands are modern, finding new ways to delight and deliver. They push themselves to earn and re-earn customers’ loyalty and they continually redefine what’s possible. Today’s omnichannel marketers are driven to build brands that answer the core question, how do I remain relevant and grow in a era of consumer skepticism? A global brand leader explores these questions -- with the central themes of business growth and earning the consumer trust dividend.
