Israeli counter-disinformation company Cyabra announced the appointment of 70th Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to its Board of Directors. Cyabra also annoucned the successful completion of a $5.7 million Series A extension round led by OurCrowd, the Jerusalem-based venture investment platform.

 Cyabra uncovers threats and provides actionable insights & real-time alerts. Through its proprietary AI technology, the company exposes malicious actors, disinformation, bot networks, and GenAI text and images.

 As a prominent figure in the international political arena and previous Director of the CIA, Mike Pompeo brings a wealth of strategic expertise to the Cyabra team. He joins Sonny Vu, Founder of Misfit, acquired by Fossil Group for $260 million, and an early investor in Cyabra through Alabaster VC, who also was recently appointed to Cyabra’s board.

 "We are thrilled to welcome Mike Pompeo to our Board of Directors," said Dan Brahmy, CEO and co-founder of Cyabra. “Throughout his distinguished career, Secretary Pompeo has demonstrated a deep understanding of the impact on national security posed by disinformation campaigns. His insights and guidance will be invaluable as Cyabra continues to develop innovative solutions to establish a digital immune system.”

Secretary Pompeo commented on the appointment: “Vigilance is key to national security. At the Department of State and the CIA, our ability to meet constantly evolving threats depended on our capacity to detect them. Cyabra's dedication to proactive, cutting-edge threat detection aligns perfectly with this mission, and I am excited to work with them as they provide a vital shield against nefarious manipulation efforts online.”
