Survey: Barriers prevent data privacy initiatives - TechRepublic

Survey: Barriers prevent data privacy initiatives - TechRepublic | The MarTech Alert | Scoop.it
Of the 186 professionals surveyed in July 2020, 37% said that their company did not have a dedicated privacy team, and 44% said their company's privacy team had one to five employees. Only 6% of respondents claimed 10 or more members on their company's privacy team. 

In terms of the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) requirements, a state statute intended to enhance privacy rights and consumer protection specifically for California residents, 26% of applicable respondents were meeting or in the process of meeting all requirements, 14% were not meeting requirements, and 28% were unsure of their company's compliance. 

A wide range of tools are available to help companies carry out their data privacy initiatives. The majority of respondents are implementing or considering implementation of data backup/recovery solutions (62%). More than half of respondents use or are considering to use endpoint protection (54%), data loss prevention (52%), and encryption software (52%). Close to half of the respondents (48%) use or may use Identity and Access Management (IAM) or (43%) Mobile Device Management (MDM). Other tools being used or considered consist of compliance software (30%), Customer Data Management (CDM) platforms (19%), and consent management applications (16%). 
CYDigital/marteq.ios insight:

Data protection and data privacy are two different topics. Regardless, companies are still woefully short in their efforts to protect the consumer's data privacy. More info when you click-through.

Twitter under FTC investigation for alleged misuse of user data - CNET

Twitter under FTC investigation for alleged misuse of user data - CNET | The MarTech Alert | Scoop.it
The investigation apparently relates to a revelation Twitter made last year in which it informed users that had recently discovered that users' email addresses and phone numbers meant to be used for security reasons "may have inadvertently been used for advertising purposes." 

That information is supposed to be used solely for account protection purposes, but Twitter said advertisers were able to tap the phone numbers to target commercials, through the company's "Tailored Audiences" and "Partner Audiences advertising system.

The new imperative for corporate data responsibility - KPMG

The new imperative for corporate data responsibility - KPMG | The MarTech Alert | Scoop.it
Consumers believe data privacy is a human right. Corporations need to raise their game. Consumers are becoming increasingly concerned with, and distrustful of, how companies safeguard their personal data against misuse and theft. Companies must take steps now to keep pace with expectations—or risk losing access to the data that increasingly drives strategy, insights and success.

To learn more about how consumers are thinking about data privacy and what they expect from corporations, KPMG surveyed 1,000 Americans. The survey reveals that consumers overwhelmingly agree that data privacy is important, and that they want corporations to take significant steps to better protect, manage and ethically use their data in 2020.
CYDigital/marteq.ios insight:

Yet another datapoint in a long line of datapoints that reveal the consumer's attitude towards data privacy. And the best way to approach this challenge is to give the consumer the ability to capture, own and control all of their data relative to your brand. The full report is available at https://advisory.kpmg.us/articles/2020/new-imperative-corporate-data-responsibility.html

Digital Identity as an Investment | by Justine Humenansky, CFA

Digital Identity as an Investment | by Justine Humenansky, CFA | The MarTech Alert | Scoop.it
The direct identity opportunity set remains limited to 300–500 startups and it’s difficult to make the case that there are deep exit opportunities as the list of potential buyers is limited. Identity solutions face very high minimum scale requirements and, therefore, identity startups must create or connect to a platform of some sort to generate real utility (ie. Okta has +6,500 integrations.) Thus, IPO opportunities for standalone entities also seem limited.
Identity startups face real barriers to entry (regulatory, compliance, and trust challenges at par with FinTech.) They also have to compete with platforms like Microsoft/Salesforce, which may ultimately become the dominant purveyor(s) of digital identity. Partnering with consortia may be a way for startups to “bootstrap” scale and compete against these established platforms, and some are employing this strategy. 

Foundational identity efforts are better suited to grant or impact funding. The Omidyar Network, the Gates Foundation, and the Mozilla Foundation all invest in foundational DID. Functional identity isn’t viewed as a category of it’s own, so it’s hard to find venture investors that focus specifically on identity.
CYDigital/marteq.ios insight:

An excellent primer on DID.

What’s Next for US Data Privacy Regulation – Adweek

What’s Next for US Data Privacy Regulation – Adweek | The MarTech Alert | Scoop.it
“There’s real justified concern for that 79% of Americans who are looking at the landscape and seeing what is a fragmented regulatory structure,” said Chris D’Angelo, chief deputy attorney general for economic justice at the New York attorney general’s office. “There’s no question that as a country we would be better off with federal legislation that laid the foundation for what our privacy expectations are.”

As far as what role that federal legislation should play, D’Angelo said he disagreed with other NexTech panelists on how much states can do in the meantime, or to bolster federal regulations after they’re established. “I think there’s certainly room for states to go above and beyond whatever federal floor is set,” he said.

Data Privacy Software Market Next Big Thing | Major Giants

Data Privacy Software Market Next Big Thing | Major Giants | The MarTech Alert | Scoop.it
Data privacy software is a software that allows the companies or users to save important data and protect against the security threats in compliance with the standards. It manages all the data privacy programs which includes the reverting back to consumers regarding the issues, it also helps the other business operators to manage their data to work together on data access, deletion, or transfer of data.
CYDigital/marteq.ios insight:

The point behind this snippet: legislation and regulation has permitted the creation of a sub-segment marketing to B2C and B2B companies...and it's not necessary. The smart approach is to give your consumers ownership of their data, give them control, and ask permission to access it in exchange for a reward. And a majority of consumers will allow that access.

MarTech Insider Anand Thaker: Marketing Not Aimed at Building Real Relationships with Customers? Cut It. - Small Business Trends

MarTech Insider Anand Thaker: Marketing Not Aimed at Building Real Relationships with Customers? Cut It. - Small Business Trends | The MarTech Alert | Scoop.it
One of the first things is marketing, yes or no? That’s not the right question to ask. That correct question is, is the marketing efforts or spend that you have, are they engaged in building a relationship with a customer? If it’s not part of the journey or if they’re not responsible for the entire journey back into the business operations of the company, then yeah, maybe need to consider cutting it, because it’s an expensive spend and you’re basically competing … You’re selling against yourself. You spend a dollar, someone spends 105, then you got to spend 110, then they spend more and then you have to spend more, but if your marketing spend is basically driven on developing a deeper relationship, meaning you are training your staff, frontline staff perhaps, at a retail store, on developing better experiences, or you’re working on the digital journey for how people buy, or trying to come up with different ways to help your customers make a decision, or help them, say, like in a fintech world, like you have some sort of financial services option, you’re trying to help them be better financial … financially savvy.
CYDigital/marteq.ios insight:

It's guidance that's applicable to B2C and B2B. And building relationships is all about the degree of personalization applied. But here's the catch: weak personalization can be sniffed out and seen as phony, and will work against the marketer. Marketers...brands, agencies, retailers...need a robust personalization solution.

Most consumers believe government regulation should help address privacy risks - Help Net Security | The MarTech Alert | Scoop.it
The research points to a privacy gap between the consumer data protection individuals want and what industry and regulators provide. While the majority of consumers want their data protected, they’re still waiting on — or expecting – the federal government or industries to provide this protection.

For instance, 60% of consumers believe government regulation should help address the privacy risks facing consumers today, of which 34% say government regulation is needed to protect personal privacy and 26% believe a hybrid option (regulation and self-regulation) should be pursued.

How to get consumers to say ‘I do’ to sharing data - Inside FMCG

How to get consumers to say ‘I do’ to sharing data - Inside FMCG | The MarTech Alert | Scoop.it
So how should brands go about collecting ‘zero-party’ data? It starts with establishing what type of information you need from the consumer and why.

“Consumers want to know why you’re engaging with them; consent is really important. Secondly, they want to know what data you want. If you don’t explain why, there’s no reason why the consumer will give you their data,” Loizou explains.

Critically, consumers need to understand what’s in it for them.

“We call it the ‘value exchange’. The first thing a customer is asking themselves is ‘’what’s in it for me? There has to be some form of exclusivity, some form of gamification or interactivity. Consumers are receiving something — a discount, an experience, exclusive access, a giveaway, etc. — in exchange for their data.”
CYDigital/marteq.ios insight:

Show value, e.g., a reward, and consumers will share data. Studies prove this to be the case.

If your website or mobile application requires the creation of user accounts and logins, it’s time to plan to transition away from cookie-based tracking to user ID tracking. In simple terms, instead of having your analytics toolset read a cookie, you pass a unique identifier associated with the user ID and then track the user via this identifier. Typically the identifier is the login ID.

U.S. digital ad revenue stalls after a record haul of $125 billion in 2019: IAB Report | Ad Age

U.S. digital ad revenue stalls after a record haul of $125 billion in 2019: IAB Report | Ad Age | The MarTech Alert | Scoop.it
U.S. digital ad revenue grew to a record-breaking $125 billion in 2019, up 16 percent over the previous year, according to the Interactive Advertising Bureau’s twice-yearly report prepared by PwC.

Many fear that in 2020 the impact from a “perfect storm” of circumstances—the coronavirus pandemic, economic recession, the demise of third-party cookies and increased consumer privacy regulation—may lead to the first decline seen in U.S. digital ad revenue for more than a decade.

The IAB coupled its annual report with revenue figures for the first quarter of 2020, which showed 12 percent growth year on year, or about $31 billion. March, however, was “sharply impacted” by the coronavirus, the IAB says.

“The first quarter of 2020 revenues mark the slowest year-over-year quarter growth since 2010, when revenues increased 8.6 percent from the prior year,” according to the report. “Many companies are expecting a continuing negative impact to the second quarter and significant uncertainty as to the severity and duration to the quarters beyond.”
CYDigital/marteq.ios insight:

Inevitable and accelerated by the factors mentioned.

Unlock the Hidden Value of Your Data - HBR

Unlock the Hidden Value of Your Data - HBR | The MarTech Alert | Scoop.it
I outline four steps that could help organizations maximize their data assets for public good:
1) Develop methodologies to measure the value of data.
2) Develop structures to incentivize collaboration. 
3) Encourage data collaboratives. Data collaboratives are an emerging form of public-private partnership that enable sharing and co-creation of value. Data sharing must not become a vehicle for privacy violations or other risks to individual rights. Building trust is essential to fostering the benefits of sharing; it is therefore critical that strong privacy protections (e.g., in the form of anonymized, aggregated data) are built into the structure and governance of data collaboratives.
4) Identify and nurture data stewards. Data stewards are individuals or teams tasked with proactively initiating, facilitating, and coordinating sharing across organizations and sectors, with the goal of maximizing both the private monetary and public value of data assets. 
CYDigital/marteq.ios insight:

We strongly recommend a data collaborative with consumers, where they are the data stewards of their own data.

SEC Commissioner Sees Increasing Demand for Cryptocurrency | Regulation - Bitcoin.com | The MarTech Alert | Scoop.it
Crypto-friendly commissioner with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Hester Peirce, said there is an increase in demand for cryptocurrency as investors seek to diversify their portfolios. The commissioner has been an avid proponent of the SEC approving bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs).

We’re seeing more interest coming from institutional quarters than we have in the past. I think that will continue … as people are looking to diversify their portfolios, I think people are also likely to look more to the crypto space.‏‏‎

She elaborated, “As people are more comfortable working in a virtual world in every industry now, I think people are likely to turn more interest to the crypto space.” Peirce previously said even before the coronavirus pandemic that one major advantage of the cryptocurrency industry was that it brings together people from across the world and helps them work together virtually. Industry participants don’t have to be in the same place to be working together.

Kin launches ad network to help generate demand for its cryptocurrency - BetaKit | The MarTech Alert | Scoop.it
Digital cryptocurrency ecosystem Kin, an organization started by Kik, has launched an independent ad network that allows consumers to earn Kin in exchange for viewing advertisements.

The network would appear to operate as a form of incentivized advertising, a format currently used by many mobile entertainment apps, such as CandyCrush. Kin’s program allows app developers to reward users for viewing ads and create more impressions and awareness for advertisers. Kin said the goal is that this system would generate “real consumer and advertiser demand” for its cryptocurrency.

Over 5.5 million users are earning Kin each month across more than 50 apps, the cryptocurrency has achieved a level of scale that is attractive to advertisers.

Opinion: Why direct-to-consumer content is the next big influencer trend | Ad Age | The MarTech Alert | Scoop.it
And as brands cut back on spending and affiliate programs like Amazon cut commission rates, content creators are increasingly using subscription sites as part of a new revenue model: direct-to-consumer.

D-to-c influencer content bills at a small rate compared to the typical brand partnership, but creators with truly engaged fan bases are positioned to make bank. This also means that the days of buying fans may be limited; what good is a large audience of bots who won’t buy your work?

Influencers are in some ways defined by their relationship to brands, to a point where aspiring influencers will tag brands just for clout. But while the d-to-c trend is emerging, it could lead to an eventual shift away from a reliance on brand relationships.

As more online brands look for ways to move beyond third-party cookies as a way of gaining more direct insights about their users and customers, a startup that has developed a platform to help them has raised a big round of funding. Bluecore, a marketing technology firm that uses data gained from direct marketing like email, social media, site activity and combines that with machine learning to make better predictions about who might want to buy what among its customers, is today announcing that it has raised $50 million.

The funding will be used to build the next generation of the Bluecore platform, expected later this year, which will tap into aggregated engagement data (but not actual browsing individuals) from “hundreds” of brands, which customers can combine with their own first-party data — based on consent-based, first-party customer IDs — to develop better targeting insights.

Facebook Ad Rates Fall as Coronavirus Undermines Spending - WSJ

Facebook Ad Rates Fall as Coronavirus Undermines Spending - WSJ | The MarTech Alert | Scoop.it
Prices in Facebook’s ad auctions nonetheless plunged between February and March, according to executives at several companies that do business on the platform. The cost to put an ad in front of Facebook users 1,000 times in March dropped 15% to 20% from February, according to a recent analysis by one advertising holding company’s buying group.

The decline was 20% at 4C Insights Inc., a marketing technology company that helped brands manage $350 million in ad spending across major tech platforms including Facebook, Instagram and Twitter Inc. from January to March.

While prices were down, total ad spending on Facebook and Instagram through 4C was up 2% in March compared with February, Mr. Goldman added. Absent the pandemic, he said he would have expected month-to-month growth of at least 10%.

Facebook isn’t alone: The cost of 1,000 impressions fell 22% on Facebook sibling Instagram from February to March, Mr. Goldman said. YouTube, part of Alphabet Inc.’s Google, also saw a 15% to 20% drop in prices from February to March, according to the ad-holding buying group.

Why Smart Companies Are Giving Customers More Data Sloan Management Review

Why Smart Companies Are Giving Customers More Data Sloan Management Review | The MarTech Alert | Scoop.it

"Companies are data wrapping when they give data and analytics to customers as product features and customer experiences — such as spend categorizers, automatic sound optimizers, and shopper insights — with the goal of increasing a product’s value proposition. There are four key characteristics that make data wrapping distinctive:

  • The data analytics “users” are a company’s customers, not employees.
  • Product owners, not IT, lead the product road map because analytics must be developed as a part of the product’s overall feature and experience portfolio.
  • Economic returns result from a lift in sales, not from an internal business process improvement.
  • It’s risky; unless companies deliver accurate, valued data wrapping, they could confuse, irritate, offend, or drive away the customers they serve.


In a 2018 survey of 511 product managers by the MIT Center for Information Systems Research (CISR), 85% reported they were developing data analytics-based features or had deployed features to the marketplace. The research indicates that companies that get data wrapping right follow three steps that keep their efforts on track."

Marketers still struggle to build a unified source of data - MarTech Today

Marketers still struggle to build a unified source of data - MarTech Today | The MarTech Alert | Scoop.it
The challenges outlined by Emily Hoffman, product marketing manager for Datorama, are often the result of disparate and siloed systems across not only the marketing organization, but businesses at large. Marketing efforts are spread across various channels — paid ads, social, email, etc. — without the technology or resources to effectively tie together the data from multichannel campaigns. Meanwhile, teams managing various data sets are just as divided with marketing, business intelligence, customer service groups and more all working within their individual silos.

“Marketers really need a transparent and holistic view to see what campaigns are most effective, how their content and offers are performing and how to understand all of their engagement,” said Hoffman, “And then, on the other side, transparency across teams is equally as important because it allows stakeholders to align and to ensure that every everyone is striving toward a shared goal.”

A Forrester report from last year backs up Hoffman’s claims, finding that marketing and business intelligence teams were often too siloed to maintain effective communication patterns, even though they relied on each other for day-to-day operations. (More recent research from Forrester found that less than 40% of customer experience executives even knew where all of their customer data was stored.)

6 Ways to Improve Your CDP Data Strategy - CMSwire

6 Ways to Improve Your CDP Data Strategy - CMSwire | The MarTech Alert | Scoop.it
The collection of marketing and technology software that a business uses is referred to as a martech stack. The CDP works in conjunction with the martech stack, but whether the CDP is at the core of the martech stack actually depends on many factors. Naras Eechambadi, founder and CEO of Quaero, expounded on this relationship, and stated that it “depends on the CDP’s particular focus, how a company chooses to leverage the CDP, and the company’s vertical, data maturation, size, etc. Some (not all) CDPs have the potential to be the core of a marketing stack, serving as the data orchestrator that brings in data from other martech systems that are collecting customer data while feeding all of the channel specific engagement systems, e.g. personalization, email or paid media.”

Typically, a CDP is designed to connect to the various data points that a business accumulates, but that connectivity also depends on whether a business is using off-the-shelf technology, or proprietary software.

Eechambadi explained this connectivity, as he stated that “CDPs usually have pre-built 2-way connectors to most common sources of customer information such as marketing clouds, tag managers, billing and ecommerce systems as well as paid media channels such as Google and Facebook. For proprietary software packages, most CDPs can add custom connectors where needed, although this may entail additional work and expense. They can, therefore, be customized to meet the specific requirements of each individual customer, although some CDPs are more flexible than others in this regard.”
CYDigital/marteq.ios insight:

CDPs should be the core of your martech stack.

Before you rip and replace another martech tool, it may be time to build a roadmap - Marketing Land

Before you rip and replace another martech tool, it may be time to build a roadmap - Marketing Land | The MarTech Alert | Scoop.it
A martech stack includes six functional areas: data gathering and storage, data quality, funnel management, process automation, reporting and analytics, and compliance. To be effective within these six areas, Ed King, CEO for the data orchestration platform Openprise, ascribes a maturity model for each, with five different levels of maturity — ranging from the “just getting started stage” where tools are implemented in an ad hock manner to level five where systems are well-oiled, integrated platforms designed to drive business outcomes.

In order gauge your maturity level for each of the six areas, martech teams must commit to an assessment — either internally or conducted by an outside consultancy — to discover where there are gaps in the technology stack and where tools overlap. According to a King, an effective assessment will help evaluate and justify new technology investments, as well as determine if existing martech contracts should be renewed.

“Once you have done an assessment — and picked the areas where you need to focus — the next thing is to start building your roadmap,” said King.
