Young trailblazer recognized for creating and leading the burgeoning AI Security category


WASHINGTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–CalypsoAI, the leader in AI Security, announced today that its CEO and Founder, Neil Serebryany, has been named to the prestigious 2024 Forbes 30 Under 30 List for Enterprise Technology. This annual list recognizes the brightest young leaders, founders and entrepreneurs committed to driving innovation and bettering the world of business-to-business technology.

Throughout his life, Neil has strived to create industry-defining innovations. He’s done so by becoming one of the world’s youngest venture capital investors and working on the front lines of national security innovation at the Department of Defense, where he was exposed to the constant threats faced by machine learning models. Neil left government to found CalypsoAI and entered the burgeoning, but already highly competitive artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) space, filing several patents for cutting-edge ML technology. Shortly thereafter, he established the AI Security category, as a roadmap to ensure every organization is able to leverage the vast potential of AI by securing its use. This category has become increasingly important as more organizations seek to adopt generative AI solutions, potentially exposing them to risks associated with data leakage and non-compliance. CalypsoAI’s powerful security solutions solve these challenges by providing the data protection and governance, ethical AI, user monitoring and oversight, and full auditability needed to navigate the changing AI threat landscape.

“As the world continues to leverage AI tools to improve productivity, obtain deeper insights, and eliminate manual tasks across industries, enabling safer AI deployment will be paramount to continued business innovation and growth,” Neil shared in response to his inclusion. “I’m honored to be recognized for my work thus far and look forward to continuing to steer the industry forward and advance CalypsoAI’s mission of enabling mass adoption of AI technologies through its safe and secured use.”

Under Neil’s leadership, CalypsoAI has developed industry-leading security solutions, trusted by Fortune 500 enterprises and U.S. government agencies like the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Defense. Earlier this year, the company launched its newest product offering, Moderator, which enables safe, secure, enterprise-wide large language model deployment. In just the past six months alone, Neil has led the company through its $23 million Series A-1 funding, bolstered its advisory board with sought-after cybersecurity experts Jim Routh and Dr. Gary McGraw, launched a partnership with Palantir, and was named the #1 Security and SaaS Startup to Watch by the Information.
