Hired to do threat modeling for a very visible and sure to be targeted 1.0 distributed consumer product, I became the Area PM responsible for product wide security. This included managing multiple security review processes, coordinating security with partner teams to drive issues to efficient resolution, writing and reviewing specifications and threat models, managing the security virtual team and working across divisions and development sites.
My work, along with my exceptional team, was rated as the best in Microsoft by the ACE Security evaluation team.
Another highlight was a dev lead saying “Mike makes developing for this project a joy. I don’t have to deal with all the process stuff and can just do my work.”
