Peter Szyszko, CEO and Founder of White Bullet, comments: “I am delighted to welcome these dynamic and ambitious individuals to our growing team. Their backgrounds are complementary and each has a passion for intelligence, analysis, brand safety and anti-piracy.
“Our focus is of huge interest to rights owners, advertisers and policymakers. We have aggressive plans to upskill in various divisions in the coming months to meet demand. White Bullet has been hiring in the last quarter as well, taking on another senior technologist, a brand safety and gambling compliance coordinator and three additional advertising data analysts.
“I have no doubt that our clients will be delighted with their combined efforts over the coming months and years. With this growing team and our market-leading platforms, tools and technologies, we will continue to help brands, advertisers, regulators and rights owners in the ongoing fight against piracy.”
White Bullet’s platform detects piracy across multiple digital ecosystems, remaining up-to-date in real-time, and tracking advertising and financial impact – with AI and machine learning taking the strain. Its Intellectual Property Infringement Platform (IPIP) takes the profit out of intellectual property crime: It looks for IP-infringing content, examines each infringement’s context, and determines structural violation on a commercial scale – providing accurate piracy risk scores based on this analysis. It has already prevented millions of pounds of ad spend from funding criminal activity by collaborating with brands, advertisers, regulators and rights owners; connecting rights owners and the advertising industry with real-time data about risk, so all parties can take action.
