Google painted a bleak picture of cybersecurity trends March 20, 2017, saying the number of websites hacked rose 32 percent a year ago, with little relief in sight."We don't expect this trend to slow down".

Google, the largest provider of digital advertising on the internet, announced on Tuesday that it plans to change its advertising policy for certain financial services, including cryptocurrencies, starting in June.

And it's working! In 2017, Google noticed that this specific type of scam steadily declined on their networks as the year progressed: In a single month in 2016, they reviewed more than 1,200 sites for potentially violating their new misrepresentative content policy and terminated 200 publishers.

According to Google, that was more than 100 bad adverts per second!

Scott Spencer, director of sustainable ads, said in a statement: "Improving the ads experience across the web, whether that's removing harmful ads or intrusive ads, will continue to be a top priority for us".

Along with its accelerated push against misleading content, Google pulled 79 million advertisements a year ago that lured clickers to websites with malware.

As such, Stansfield said yearly the firm report on the actions it took to keep the ecosystem safe for people, publishers and advertisers. It also removed 400,000 unsafe sites.

On the publisher side, Google said it removed 320,000 bad publishers from its ad network, part of its strategy to "remove the economic incentives for sites to create and spread deceptive content online".

According to her, this new technology has been critical in helping to scale enforcement for policies that prohibit monetization of inappropriate and controversial content.

The restriction will apply to Google's search platform, YouTube and third-party websites where Google sells advertising space through AdSense.

Suspended 7,000 users of Google's AdWords ad-placement service for scams like diet pill sales and weight-loss programs reached by misleading ads that look like eye-catching news headlines.

In 2018, they will introduce several new policies to protect users online that will address ads in unregulated, overly complex, or speculative financial products like binary options, cryptocurrency, foreign exchange markets and contracts for difference (or CFDs).
