TAG, a leading global initiative, works to combat criminal activity and foster trust within the digital advertising landscape. Its certification programs – which include Brand Safety Certified (BSC), Certified Against Fraud (CAF) and Certified Against Malware (CAM) - have been developed to address cross-industry supply chain challenges around these complicated issues.

According to TAG, a record 32 companies achieved ‘TAG Platinum’ status with three or more seals, and 218 companies achieved at least one TAG certification.

For ABC, we’re proud to see a 15% increase YoY on seals being issued to our clients. For brand safety, we now audit 74% of independently certified companies, and across all seals that are audited we have a leading share of 57%.  

As an approved TAG auditor, we deliver an independent and reliable assessment that ensures participating companies adhere to TAG's industry best practices. By undergoing our audits, companies show they can:

  • Demonstrate good practices
  • Identify operational efficiencies
  • Enhance trust and transparency

Congratulations to all our clients for successfully completing our audits and achieving TAG certification:
