“Our report demonstrates that brand safety is a complex issue that remains highly relevant for many brands, and there isn’t necessarily one standard applicable to all advertisers. Despite continued risks to brands, we believe advertisers can take active steps to tackle brand safety and ad fraud.”

Ebiquity partnered with ad fraud and brand safety specialists zulu5 to assess brand safety in the UK digital advertising market. The study analysed more than four million critical internet domains. We found that in the first quarter of 2019 alone, ads from almost two-thirds of the top 100 advertisers in the UK appeared in environments many consider to be non-brand-safe.
