"It's always better and cheaper to catch these issues earlier in the cycle," Curry said, advocating for the use of memory-safe programming languages and zero trust architecture.

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2024, Curry also discussed:

  • The importance of merging AI-driven models with traditional security to ensure comprehensive system protection;
  • The ongoing need for conventional security measures, such as risk assessments and resource allocation, to safeguard AI-integrated systems;
  • Challenges and strategies for protecting the integrity, availability and privacy of data within AI systems.

Prior to Zscaler, Curry served as chief security officer at Cybereason and chief technology and security officer at Arbor Networks. Before that, he spent more than seven years at RSA, the security division of EMC, in a variety of senior management positions, including chief strategy officer, chief technologist and senior vice president of product management and product marketing. Curry also has held senior roles at Microstrategy, Computer Associates and McAfee. He is a member of the CyberEdBoard.
