Hello and Welcome Back,
We should all thank Mark Pritchard, the Global Branding Officer at Procter and Gamble, for calling out reporting issues on digital advertising platforms at IAB and ANAA earlier this year.

Finally, our book of the week is Data and Goliath: The Hidden Battles to Collect Your Data and Control Your World. Bruce Schneider is one of the leading security experts in the world and this is an eye-opening read.
Until next time,
Frank (aka The big man in the middle)
