Dr David Chapman

Information Security trainer

Hi, I'm David Chapman from CHL, a small UK company providing online information security and programming skills training. I hold PhD in small firm information security from Coventry University. As a practitioner, I am actively involved in cloud-based platform-as-a-service application deployment. I have project managed - classically and increasingly through Agile - many small and medium-sized information system implementations. I have also developed and delivered many face-to-face technical IT developer-focussed and information security commercial training courses. As an academic, I develop and deliver information security-related university undergraduate and postgraduate courses in the UK and abroad. Combining practitioner and academic activity benefits industry clients and students alike. As a practitioner, I am more reflective and better informed by current research. As a teaching academic, practitioner activity keeps me up-to-date about current industry practices. Why the small business focus? I just like small business. I value its human scale. It's an honourable, decent way to make a living. I am a fourth-generation small business owner. I'm Australian and proud of it. But, despite the weather, I have lived in the UK for nearly forty years.
