The Advertising Technology (AdTech) ecosystem, comprised of thousands of third-party vendors, is both a facilitator for digital advertising, and a target of regulatory scrutiny and enforcement. In the US, emerging state consumer privacy laws impose differing compliance obligations, while major technology platforms are forcing organizations to re-think how they use AdTech to drive critical digital advertising revenue.
FTI Consulting brings together thought leadership, experience, and expertise to solve these difficult problems. Our suite of integrated services is designed to help businesses manage and mitigate regulatory risks, optimize their data, and protect and grow critical revenue derived from digital advertising.
