Welcomes Sean Griffin

Washington, DC – October 18, 2018 – For Immediate Release

Disaster Intelligence welcomes Sean M. Griffin as President and CSO.  Sean recently served as Director for Incident Management Integration Policy on the National Security Council at the White House.

During his White House term (under two US Presidents), Sean led the Executive Office of the President and inter-agency policy coordination for major disasters and incidents, which included the 2016 Louisiana flood response and recovery and Hurricane Matthew.

Sean also led emergency management, training, and exercise programs at the U.S. Department of State, Defense Logistics Agency, and National Institutes of Health. Mr. Griffin is also an active duty veteran of the U.S. Navy and Naval Nuclear Power Program.  Mr. Griffin volunteered his time to Chair the Federal Sector Emergency Managers Caucus for the International Association of Emergency Managers (IAEM) and is a leading member of the Private Sector Committee for the National Emergency Management Association (NEMA).  Mr. Griffin holds a Bachelors in Nuclear Engineering Technology and completing a Masters in Emergency Management.


DISASTER INTELLIGENCE was founded in 2018, and is the first company to envision the use of cognitive technologies together with real time geospatial analytics, applied purely to the challenge of Emergency Management, and large scale disaster response & recovery.

The platform’s cross-filter paradigm meets the need for modern self-service data discovery, critical when working with today’s massive data sets. When users click on any dimension in geospatial, charts or graphs, we simultaneously redraw every other visualization in a dashboard to reflect the new context IN REAL TIME. This is a transformative way to quickly find correlations and outliers in data.

DISASTER INTELLIGENCE is a member of the National Information Sharing Cooperative (NISC), and is working closely with the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) on a number of initiatives, including the Outage Data Initiative, which standardizes power outage reporting for utilities, mutual aid and emergency management.

The platform redefines operational analytics by giving users the power to query and visually explore highly diverse, multi-billion row, high-velocity datasets at the speed of thought.
