Hello! My Name is Colin Chaplin.
A died-in-the wool techie, I first cut my teeth during my degree by performing hardware upgrades and migrating to Windows 95 on several hundred machines; this eventually led to leading support of a very large Exchange installation.
I gradually moved into designing and architecting large-scale IT infrastructure solutions, which ultimately led to my work having a high degree of security focus. A significant portion is advising on security for central government projects, from the £million to £multi-billion. However, the odd SoHo project keeps my feet on the ground.
I started Wordfish Ltd two years ago as a small consultancy business focussed on web technology, infrastructure and security design.
I am a GCHQ listed security advisor (CLAS), hold 3 MCSEs, TOGAF and a bundle of other vendor qualifications.
