Dr David Chapman
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 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. As well as student teaching, my interest in pedagogy has led me to develop and deliver several university-staff teach-the-teacher programmes.
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.
I hold a BSc in computer science from Leicester Polytechnic and a PhD in small firm information security from Coventry University.
