Connect your valuable efforts to business results

Prioritize actions, 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
  • Constant distractions prevent 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 to business goals. This is frustrating and can make you feel disconnected from the business and its priorities and you don’t know how to communicate your value effectively.

At Security Catalyst, I understand how frustrating it is to align your efforts with business results when you don’t have a seat at the table. That's I developed the Security Catalyst Method to help security leaders prioritize their activities, solve the right problems, deliver value faster, and communicate what counts, earning recognition as a great leader who also happens to know 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 back burner 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.
