David Buchanan


Education: George Fox University, B.A. Business, B.A. Accounting

David leads Delap’s managed IT services practice, helping clients minimize their IT complexity, streamline business processes with automation, and build a strong foundation for future growth.

He has over 15 years of extensive experience in information technology (IT) security across multiple industries, including healthcare, banking, and retail payments. David also provides domestic and international clients with cybersecurity leadership and helps them attain the benefits of performance security at all levels of their organizations.

David’s passion for cybersecurity and technology is rooted in his constant desire to be challenged and learn new skills.

David lives and works out of Lake Oswego, Oregon. When it comes to hobbies, he generally has only one approach: diving in 100%. He enjoys growing and cloning tropical plants, which is both challenging and rewarding. When he isn’t spending his time surrounded by beautiful, vibrant, strange, and sometimes downright funky-looking tropical foliage, David enjoys exploring Oregon’s wine country with his wife and investing in the people around him.
