Online privacy and the impact on advertising

We’ve seen a huge shift in awareness and expectation for how users are tracked online and privacy is now firmly top of the digital agenda. Tech companies are having to adapt to the new landscape, with Google announcing they are moving away from cookies and Apple’s latest iOS 14 release putting control in the hands of individual users.

This one hour webinar will explore the changing digital landscape for online tracking and how organisation will need to adjust. Join James Akers, the Digital Culture Network’s Tech Champion for Data Analytics and Insight, for a voyage into the past, present and future of online advertising.

In this session, you will learn:

  • What Cookies are and why they might cause you problems in the future
  • How advertisers know what you’re thinking (including Is your phone listening to you?)
  • Why organisations need to be prepared for the upcoming changes and the impact on advertising

What level is it?

Beginner – We will explore the past, present and future of online advertising and tracking so no prior knowledge is required.

What type of webinar is it?

Practical demonstration using presentation slides and the screen-share function. You will be able to ask questions using the Q+A function and engage with the presenters using the chat. This session will be hosted as a Zoom Webinar.

If you have your smartphone handy during the session you can follow along as we explore what the companies know about you.
