Who we are

InfoSec Global is augmenting digital trust by reducing risk, enhancing responsiveness, and improving resilience with agile cryptography.

Origin Story

InfoSec Global's story begins when our co-founders Nagy Moustafa and Taher Elgamal conceptualized a business offering based on crypto-lifecycle management that empowers executive management, CSOs and security ops teams to regain control of cryptography. As cryptography has been static for the last two decades, now is the time to disrupt the market with ISG's crypto platform as a service solution.

Over the years InfoSec Global has established strategic partnerships with numerous companies including IBM and HashiCorp and concluded strategic investments with Synopsys and Malar Group. We have established a global presence and worked closely with universities worldwide, such as the University of Waterloo and ETH. In the process, we have been granted validation by FIPS, as well as multiple patents, along with being actively engaged in the post-quantum research community.  

Notably, Taher is the original inventor of key cryptographic technologies, protocols and standards, and is known as the ‘father of SSL.’ With over 150 years of collective experience in the Security and IT industry, InfoSec Global provides technology innovation, thought leadership and expertise in cryptographic life-cycle management through our crypto platform as a service. 

Additionally, check out our “What is Cryptographic Agility?” page to see research publications in this field by our crypto experts.
