Connect your valuable efforts to Business Results

Prioritize activities, get more stuff done, and earn your seat at the adult table

It’s hard to express your value 

when everything is a priority

  • “Priorities” always changing
  • Projects keep getting stalled or delayed
  • Too many conflicting objectives
  • Distractions or reassignments; not sure where to focus
  • Everything needs to be coordinated with others
  • You feel like you can’t say NO

All of this can make you feel like you’re not not connected to the business,

but it doesn’t have to be this way…

You can connect your efforts directly to business results

While entrusted with a vital part of the business, security leaders are often not included in business initiatives or decisions because they lack a seat at the table to provide input in business goals. This is frustrating and can make you feel disconnected from the business and its priorities and don’t know how to communicate your value effectively.

At Security Catalyst, I understand how challenging it is to align your efforts with business results when you don’t have a seat at the table, which is why I developed the Security Catalyst Method to help security leaders prioritize their activities so they get stuff done and, finally, earn a seat at the table.

Clear priorities Drive business results

Clarity and confidence in your decision making, will flip the switch so you are viewed as a great leader who happens to good at security.

Your Leadership Catalyst

Many security leaders are entrusted with a vital part of the business, but have no say in the prioritization of business initiatives. As a result, their efforts are often overlooked or put on the backburner to other projects. 

Hi. I’m Michael. After 25 years as a security leader, I understand how challenging it is to align your efforts with business results, so you get recognized for your efforts. Especially, when your priorities are always changing. 

At Security Catalyst, I use the Security Catalyst Method to help security leaders prioritize their activities so they get stuff done, (finally) get recognized for your efforts, and earn a seat at the table.

Why Leaders Seek Security Catalyst

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, dolore consectetur adipisicing elit, sed duius eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore labore magna aliqua.

  1. 1
    Get insider experience with an outsider perspective
    Security remains complex and confusing. I bring insider experience across the breadth and depth of security, but the outsider perspective for fresh eyes on your situation. We work together based on your situation to connect security with the business, executives, board, and even your vendors.
  2. 2
    Reduce friction, amplify value
    It takes the right catalyst to ease change by reducing friction by lowering barriers and removing obstacles that erode value, destroy trust, and burn people out. It's about pulling, not pushing. With less friction, I help multiply energy and build momentum that creates more value, more trust, and less burnout.

  3. 3
    Meet the business challenge of security
    Security concerns are now business concerns, demanding fresh approaches and additional skills. We need the right blend of technology and “people” skills to influence without authority and collaborate across teams. I teach and develop these skills into superpowers.

What to Expect

Create more value, not more work

Tired of the demand to do more, with less? We work together to pinpoint the right problems to solve, clarify the path to deliver value faster, and communicate what counts to earn trust and recognition for consistently valuable results. We also develop a way to triage and handle requests, helping you and your team stay focused on creating more value, not more work.

I'm all in on your success

I'm here to work myself out of a job. Sure, it might take a few years... but my focus is on developing the team to deliver value faster, earning trust and recognition. I meet you where you are and adapt to you and your environment to guide the right journey for you and your team.

Guide for your journey, not a consultant to manage

Straight Talk: I deliver honesty with empathy

Ease change with a pull, not a push

Calibrated to your situation

I begin to get the pulse of your organization through speaking with key leaders, reviewing the processes and systems already have in place, and determining the best ways for us to work together. In short, I orient myself to fit into your workflow and ways of doing things, rather than disrupting your day-to-day operations.
