The Foundational Building Blocks of Consumer Data

To achieve relevant personalization at scale, you have to start with the building blocks of foundational consumer data. In 2023, brands spent over $9.2 billion on identity resolution—signaling a recognition for the need to get identity data right.

This is where Verisk Marketing Solutions comes in. As a leading provider of foundational data for marketers, we offer insights across the three core components that power personalization:

  • Who | Identity Resolution — Through identity resolution, marketers gain a clearer understanding of who they want to target. Resolution unites disparate identity markers, such as name, phone, address, email, mobile ad ID, and IP address, into a persistent person or household identifier.
  • What | Attribute Enrichment — With identity fundamentals in place, we enable marketers to add attributes that help define their ideal customers and drive profitability. Attributes include everything from demographics and lifestyle information to home and vehicle ownership and financial risk indicators. Marketers can use this information to personalize messaging and improve relevancy.
  • When | In-Market Signals — Timing in marketing is everything. Even the most carefully crafted, personalized messages will fall flat if they don’t reach the recipients when they’re in the market for the promoted product or service. This is especially true of considered purchases with longer buying journeys.

“Having the right foundational data about a person is really the building block to be able to effectively pull off personalization into the future.”

Eli Schwarz, Chief Strategy Officer, Verisk Marketing Solutions

Prioritizing Consumer Data Security

Consumers may prefer personalization, but not at the expense of privacy and security. Therefore, diligence around privacy and security underpins all of our consumer identity data work.

Specifically, Verisk Marketing Solutions employs the highest levels of security in the handling of sensitive customer data. We have fortified our process for building data assets in a secure cloud environment, using both the AWS platform and Snowflake. All consumer data is dynamically masked so no one can see or access personally identifiable information. In addition, we encrypt all data we deliver, and customers have encryption keys that are unique to them.

“We take multiple steps to ensure that our data is secure. Our clients can depend on that.”

MJ Yafchak, VP, Data Strategy, Verisk Marketing Solutions
