Security Catalyst Podcast Breaks New Ground, Offers Companies Chance to Win Free 'Security Makeover'

Share Article

Recognized expert on information security and privacy issues, Michael Santarcangelo, is offering companies an opportunity for free coaching and consulting to improve their security. Companies not selected can learn by following the progress during the 10-week makeover period.

In a bold move pushing podcasting to a new first, well-known and respected expert on security and privacy issues Michael Santarcangelo is offering businesses a chance to win a free “security makeover” and podcast their progress -- their identity protected -- with his coaching and guidance over a 10 week period.

“I am amazed by the number of companies that know they need to take action, but are paralyzed to actually move forward,” said Santarcangelo, creator of the popular security podcast known as “The Security Catalyst.” “I wanted to do something that not only helped a company improve their security, but also demonstrate to other businesses that they too can take action – by following along and learning about security in a real-world situation that is likely to have many similarities to their own.”

“Initial responses came in quickly, but we look forward to more,” said Santarcangelo. Applications will be accepted until April 14, and the company selected for the “security makeover” will be announced the week of April 17th. As security is a serious issue for companies, the selected winner will not be named publicly.

The selected company will receive free telephone consulting and coaching – valued at over $12,000 -- from Santarcangelo, a well recognized professional speaker who advises Fortune 500 companies on effective strategies to address security, privacy, and compliance issues.

Companies not selected will still be able to learn by listening in to the weekly updates as the “makeover” is candidly discussed episode by episode. “I am planning to bring a real company, with real security issues to the public eye so that other companies can learn by listening,” said Santarcangelo.

This announcement came the week Santarcangelo announced the Security Catalyst Podcast will remain sponsor and advertisement free.

To apply, go to and look for details. Applications will be accepted until April 14, 2006.
