In his new role, Michael is leading the go-to-market strategy for positioning and distributing CyVers’s products to their target audience. This role often integrates various business functions—such as product development, marketing, sales, and customer insights—into a unified value proposition and action plan.

“I’m thrilled to be part of a team with a proven track record of success. As the crypto market surges and institutional adoption grows, security emerges as a paramount challenge within the web3 ecosystem. My decision to join Cyvers stems from my conviction in their AI-based solution’s ability to fortify the web3 domain and eradicate the malicious actors tarnishing its image,” Michael Pearl told FinanceFeeds.

CyVers is a blockchain security company using geometric machine learning to detect real-time cryptocurrency attacks. Per its website, the company’s analysis teams have access to a complete and accurate view of their DeFi data’s status across all blockchain protocols and internal cyber business data. CyVers’ Security Operation Platform is designed to help Web 3.0 businesses, security, compliance, fraud, and risk teams identify and respond to incidents across the entire crypto attack surface.

Pearl brings a wealth of experience from the fintech industry, having spent nearly two decades working with various companies in this sector. He landed at Kirobo from Natural Intelligence, where he held the position of Head of Content for the fintech division for under a year, managing all content-related operations.

Before this role, Pearl dedicated nearly five years to Finance Magnates, where he began as the Head of Intelligence in 2015 and eventually ascended to the role of Director of Content. In this capacity, he was responsible for overseeing the intelligence department, directing the strategy and operations of the financial news platform, and leading a global content team among other responsibilities.

Additionally, Pearl has experience as an editor and correspondent for Calcalist, a media outlet based in Tel Aviv, where he worked for a year.

Academically, Pearl holds a law degree and a master’s degree in international relations, both from the University of Haifa. Beyond his academic and professional achievements, he has also served as a senior parliamentary advisor at the Knesset, following his mandatory defense services.

FIA urges CFTC to regulate use cases rather than AI itself

“We urge the CFTC to refrain from crafting new regulations that generally regulate AI because this approach presents certain well-known pitfalls. By approaching the issue from the perspective of AI as a technology, rather than the use case for the technology, corresponding regulations would likely necessitate a definition of AI. We anticipate that any attempt to properly define AI would be very challenging and require considerable resources.”
