He holds a Doctorate in Security & Risk Management from the University of Portsmouth, UK, writing his thesis on strategic management and critical decision-making in hyper-complex crisis environments.

He is currently an associate lecturer at University of Portsmouth and a visiting lecturer on the MA in International Security Management at University of Berlin, Germany.

Rubens has written government-level research papers and reports on all aspects of security management, from national-level security sector restructuring, through to post-disaster analysis for government agencies in Japan, Russia, Dubai, Nigeria, Liberia and the UK.

David currently runs certificated training programmes for strategic risk and crisis management around the world.
