Pepe Agell (Chartboost)
Fraud has been an epidemic in display advertising for over a decade. And with mobile advertising revenue expected to overtake display in 2018, fraudsters have taken notice and set their sights on mobile. Consequently, the multi-billion dollar mobile game industry has been hit the hardest. What's perhaps most troubling is that many developers aren't equipped to protect themselves. At Chartboost, our transparent philosophy has kept us on the cutting edge in the battle against fraud. At this talk, Pepe will present common examples of fraud in mobile gaming, the metrics you can monitor to be alerted of fraudulent activity, and how you can protect yourself against it.
