Curry to help lead weather and climate systems implementation
Boston, April 6, 2022 – The Tomorrow Companies Inc. (“Tomorrow.io”), the world’s leading weather and climate security platform, today announced the addition of Sam Curry to the company’s Strategic Advisory Board. Curry, Cybereason’s Chief Security Officer, joins at a critical point in the weather and climate industry when companies are in the early stages of building and implementing automated predictive software based systems to augment meteorology, weather, climate and sustainability teams.
In addition to being a Visiting Fellow at the National Security Institute, Curry was CTO and CISO for Arbor Networks (NetScout). Previous to Arbor Networks, he was CSO and SVP R&D at MicroStrategy. Curry spent seven years at RSA, the Security Division of EMC as Chief Technologist and SVP of Product and has also held senior management security roles at McAfee and CA. Curry also has over 20 patents in security from his time as a security architect, has been a leader in two successful startups, and is a board member of the Cybersecurity Coalition, of SSH Communications and of Sequitur Labs.
“Sam is a legend in the security industry, having not only served market-leading companies, but also being a force of innovation and advancement,” says Dan Slagen, CMO of Tomorrow.io. “What attracted us to Sam is his ability to be several steps ahead of the curve and his understanding of critical systems implementation, which in the weather industry comes at a time when we are seeing companies now understanding that using automated technology as a force multiplier working with meteorologists is enhancing their capabilities beyond what they had previously imagined, producing a true 1+1=3 scenario.”
Amidst a wave of recent public appointments of chief meteorologists at Fortune 500 companies and major cities, mitigating weather catastrophes, being climate secure and implementing sustainable systems that scale is top of mind for board rooms. As the evolution of adjacent industries such as cyber security has seen a transformational shift from human-first security monitoring to systems-based automation, the weather and climate industry has reached the same pivotal moment where climate security is the new cyber security.
“We’ve reached the point with weather and climate impact where the difference between companies at risk vs. the leading organizations will come down to who has implemented the right systems to augment teams,” says Curry. “We already lived through this trend in the cybersecurity industry, and no matter how many years of experience I have in this industry, I would never imagine operating a world-class security operation without industry leading systems. The same is true for meteorologists, weather, climate and sustainability teams alike.”
Curry will be advising Tomorrow.io on a number of industry initiatives and exclusive customer offerings to bridge the gap between human-only operations to more enhanced automated software-based systems, unlocking and enabling meteorology teams to objectively safeguard their organizations from weather risk.
