[ Empowering Your Cybersecurity Journey ]


Hi, I'm Mike Boutwell, your guide to not just navigating but mastering the cybersecurity landscape. With over 15 years of experience safeguarding the digital assets of major financial institutions across three continents, my journey is more than a career—it's a mission to make the digital world a secure place for everyone.


From Engineering to Empowerment

My story began in the intricate world of network infrastructure engineering, where I quickly realized that cybersecurity wasn't just about protecting data—it was about empowering people. In 2018, I founded the Pallas Group to bring personalized cybersecurity solutions to businesses in need. But my passion didn't stop there. As the author of "The Ransomware Handbook" and "Profit-Driven Cybersecurity," I've dedicated myself to sharing knowledge that makes a difference.
