Since then, he has authored, coauthored, or contributed to more than 30 books. One of his true joys in life is receiving emails from readers letting him know about their successes after using one of his books.
Over the years, Darril has earned multiple certifications including: CompTIA A+, Network+, Security+, CASP, and CTT+; (ISC)2 SSCP and CISSP; Microsoft MCT (since 1999), MCSA, MCSE, MCITP, MCTS, MCDST, MCAD, MCSD, and MCDST.
Darril has written books on CompTIA A+, Network+, and Security+ core certifications, ISC(2) SSCP and CISSP security certifications, and multiple Microsoft certifications.
