Mohammed Muraj is a practicing lawyer for the last 10 years focusing on mergers and acquisitions and technology. He currently serves as General Counsel of Canadian Growth Investments (a venture capital investor in early stage cybersecurity companies) and InfoSec Global (a portfolio investment of Canadian Growth Investments that provides innovation and leadership through expertise in cryptographic lifecycle management).
