Introducing new Globus AI board member, Stuart McClure

Jan 21, 2021

Globus AI is delighted that former Cylance founder/CEO and serial entrepreneur Stuart McClure has joined its board. He will support the team in building Globus AI into a scalable, global software solution.

As founder and CEO of Cylance, Stuart successfully disrupted the cybersecurity sector with the first math-based and machine learning approach to threat detection, protection and response. The software prevents 99.999% of existing and emerging threats before they run -offering businesses a more proactive approach to cybersecurity. Under Stuart’s leadership, the company grew to over 900 employees and more than 3,500 active customers. Cylance was acquired by Blackberry for $1.5 billion, six years after its launch.

 

Before this, Stuart held executive leadership positions, including general manager and global CTO at McAfee, co-CISO at Kaiser Permanente - a $34 billion healthcare company, cybersecurity practice lead at Ernst & Young, and test labs director at IDG. He is also a serial entrepreneur with two successful exits prior to Cylance - this includes security company Foundstone that was acquired by McAfee for $90 million.

 

Stuart is also a well-known thought leader in cybersecurity and artificial intelligence (AI). He was the lead author of Hacking Exposed, which shows administrators how the flaws and loopholes insecurity technologies can be exploited. It is widely recognized as one of the most successful books in the industry.

 

He brings his decades of experience and wealth of knowledge in building scalable, successful, and impactful companies to Globus AI. Stuart will assist the Globus AI leadership team with their recruitment and workforce strategies, structuring the organization, setting goals, board best practices, and connecting the Globus AI team with his network and connections.

 

Outside of work, Stuart is an avid cyclist, regularly taking part in global bike races and more leisurely rides around his Californian home. Stuart is also passionate about AI for good - and supporting companies that use technology to benefit society in a sustainable and responsible way.
