Highly knowledgeable

Michael is highly knowledgeable in the cyberspace security field.

I was able to attend a workshop that Michael served as panel member, at FIU during the 2013 South Florida PMI's Day of Excellence. His insight sparked great interest and awareness on the various threats and measures that IT practitioners and organizations must consider to address and protect that data assets. What I admire the most about Michael is his ability to share his knowledge and provide sound best practices that will help in being successful IT professionals. For this and many other reasons, I greatly recommend Mr. Michael Scheidell.

Security Leader

I have recruited Data Security leaders since the early 80’s. Mike Scheidell is at the top of his profession. There is no challenge too big or too complicate for this industry guru. He has provided my organization with state of the art protection and I have never heard from him or his team “we can't do that”. An old story comes to mind, in the early 80’s I asked Mike if he knew how to provide my company a simple solution to a very complicated issue we had that appeared to be over the top. His answer was “no…, but I can figure it out”. And he did.

Recent data suggests that cybercrime costs U.S. businesses $1.3 Billion annually, while global estimates place the worldwide cost in excess of $3 Trillion. Security breaches occur and are publicized almost daily, with consequences that range from unbudgeted client notification programs and credit monitoring services, to costly remediation and upgrade activities, to fines and lost business.
