Roundtable: Death of the Humble Cookie, All Your Questions Answered

Nader Henein, VP Analyst, Gartner

Bart Willemsen, VP Analyst, Gartner

Third-Party Cookies (TPCs) transparently support much of what we do on the internet, they facilitate site functionality, enable tracking and underpin the adtech ecosystem, which pays for a free web to the tune of US$83 per user per year. TPCs are basically being deprecated as the larger browser platforms will default to "disable." This will impact your organization in many ways. At the very least you will need to work with your vendors to transition to a cookie-less way of doing business. But most organizations will have to pivot away from an implicit cookie-based model towards an explicit consent-based model to survive in the digital space. This is your opportunity to learn how this change will impact your organization, ask your questions and walk away with a clear plan.
