Nicholas Chantler has a wide-range of practical knowledge in Intelligence and Security. He is well-travelled, with a rich experience of Eastern-block and Middle-East countries. Major Chantler, a former counter-intelligence officer in the Australian Intelligence Corps, continues to maintain his military connections through the Army Reserve.

Nicholas was one of the founding members of the Australian Institute for Professional Intelligence Officers (AIPIO).
In 1996 his Doctorate studied computer hackers, the risks they pose and their psychology. It also included aspects on the security vulnerabilities of information systems and, as information becomes intelligence, the natural progression of further research of how information is used within the intelligence communities, and how it is used as Information Warfare.
