IAS Webinar: Addressing Targeting in the Cookieless World

02/19 By IAS Team

Third-party cookies are about to crumble as a result of growing data privacy regulations, and its demise through 2021 will remain top of mind for every marketer.

The IAS Industry Pulse Report, which surveyed digital advertising experts, found that for half (49%) of the industry, the deprecation of third-party cookies remains the top challenge in 2021, as we enter into the final year before Google’s removal by 2022. 

As the effects of increasing data privacy rules have taken hold, media experts are having to adapt to ensure compliance. However, 40% of marketers believe that their company is not fully prepared, according to a study by IAB Europe. In February 2021, IAS contributed to IAB Europe’s latest ‘Guide to the Post-Third-Party Cookie Era’ to help navigate and prepare for a post-third-party cookie advertising era. 

As the race against time is on, how can advertisers continue to target and build meaningful connections with their audiences in this a privacy-friendly, cookie-free future?
