With all the recent ransomware hacks (Colonial Pipeline, JBS the world's largest meat supplier, etc) I was intrigued when this opportunity to interview Mahmoud presented itself..

On today’s episode, I have Mahmoud Abdelkader, the CEO of Very Good Security, which is like a credit card network for exchanging data
Mahmoud co-founded and served as the CTO of a a YCominbator company, Balanced Payments, which was sold to Stipe in 2015. He is also an active angel investor, serves as an advisor to numerous FinTech startups

Mahmoud really had to break down what he does for me in simplest terms, and the best way I can explain it is: just like most of us don't carry around cash money, he wants companies to stop carrying their data. No data = no ransomware hacks and loss of billions of dollars (and increase in gas prices, food, etc)

In addition to talking about cybersecurity, we talked about Mahmoud's history transitioning from NYC to NorCal and being a part of 2 startup acquisitions prior to starting VGS

This is a great interview and I learned a ton! Check it out, leave a review, and share with a friend
