Epic Advertising, Inc. ( http://www.EpicAdvertising.com ), the New York online performance-based marketing company, announced today that they have hired two new Cyber industry experts, adding to the Company’s already robust internal Internet Compliance Group. Jonathan Gillman has been named Manager, Regulatory Affairs and Anwesa Paul has been named Privacy Officer and Associate General Counsel. The two positions will report to David Graff, the company’s General Counsel, and they will be based at the company’s New York City headquarters.
Previously, Gillman was the lead investigator of the Cyber Fraud Task Force for the Florida Attorney General’s Economic Crimes Division.
