Darren Chapman


Hi, I’m Darren Chapman and I’m the Owner/Director of CyberScale; I also act as the Principal Security Consultant, overseeing all client engagements.

I’ve been working in IT for over 20 years, starting my IT career at Norwich Union (as was) on the IT helpdesk.  SInce then I’ve performed a number of techincal, consulting and management roles for large and small companies, with a focus both Security AND User Experience.  This experience has helped me undertsand that IT & Cyber Security, whilst critical to organisations today more than ever, doesn’t work if the controls put in place stifle productivity and simply frustrate people who are simply trying to do their job efficiently.  Hence, Pragmatic IT Security.



The Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) is the most sought after qualification in the field of Information Security.  It requires passing a 5 hour exam, along with at least 5 years verified experience in the field of Information Security.

The CISSP also requires ongoing learning, vital in a field of expertise that changes constantly.

I gained my CISSP in 2017, to add to numerous other qualifications previously gained in the IT field including MCSE (Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer), PRINCE2 (Project Management) and ITIL (Service Management).
