An unfiltered and opinionated hacker, author, and passionate speaker, who is exciting and relatable.


Mishaal leverages his expertise in cybersecurity, privacy, and OSINT to raise awareness and educate individuals and organizations on potential threats they may not be aware of. He also provides actionable next steps to help protect against these threats.

Jack of All Trades, Master of Some

Having amassed over two decades of multinational experience, he operates as a virtual CISO, a Certified Ethical Hacker, a Social Engineer, the first IntelTechniques Certified OSINT Professional, a privacy consultant, a proficient coder, and an adept problem solver.


With his honest and unfiltered approach, he captivates his audience by staying true to himself and fearlessly speaking his mind. This quality is highly valued in a field rife with sponsorship bias, political correctness, and a preoccupation with public opinion.


With a combination of personal anecdotes, clear thinking, and relatable examples, he has a natural talent for connecting with people and breaking down complex topics into easily understandable terms.


Mishaal works as a vCISO (Chief Information Security Officer) for his clients.

He is also the founder of multiple startups in the field of cybersecurity, privacy, intelligence, and cybersecurity leadership.


He actively maintains an open-source project on GitHub: VoIP Suite, a self-hosted privacy-focused Voice-Over-IP application, along with a DIY privacy management dashboard.

He also volunteers his time for mentoring, helping people in trouble with his OSINT skills, and educating by giving talks.
