About the TAG Certified Against Fraud Program
The mission of the TAG Certified Against Fraud Program is to combat fraudulent non-human
traffic in the digital advertising supply chain.
In order to guide companies in fighting fraud effectively, the TAG Anti-Fraud Working Group has
developed Certified Against Fraud Guidelines, as well as a suite of anti-fraud tools to aid in
compliance with those guidelines.
Companies that are shown to abide by the Certified Against Fraud Guidelines receive the
“Certified Against Fraud” Seal and can use the seal to publicly communicate their commitment
to combatting fraudulent non-human traffic in the digital advertising supply chain.
