About Scheller Cyber Security

In 2004, Derek Scheller joined the Pennsylvania Air National Guard as an IT Specialist determined to serve his country the best way he knew how, by working on computers and networks. Though he was a system administrator in the Air Force, he spent his free time working in cybersecurity and Linux infrastructures. He attended California University of Pennsylvania and earned a B.S. in Computer Information Systems in 2009. After working on his degree, he attended Pittsburgh Technical Institute becoming a Microsoft Network Professional. It was there he first earned his CCNA-R/S, as well as several Microsoft Certifications.

After completing his formal education and feeling he could do more, he left the Air National Guard in December 2010 and joined the Active Duty Army. It was here that he not only took on roles in information technology but also cybersecurity. While enlisted in the Army, he worked towards and earned his CCNA-Security, CEH, CPT, GSEC, GCED, GCIH, and GPYC. In 2017, Derek was medically retired from the Army though never giving up on the ideals instilled in him.

In July of 2017, Derek founded Scheller Cyber Security and has made it his mission to help companies across the country. As a consultant and trainer, he looks to help secure the networks of the United States even to this day. To prove his mettle on January 31, 2018, Derek passed the CISSP exam which is known as one of the elite certifications in cybersecurity, and on March 5, 2018, his endorsement was certified by (ISC)2 and he became an official CISSP. With his goals never wavering, he now aims to earn his OSCP in the pursuit of knowledge.

Established in 2017, Scheller Cyber Security is a disabled-veteran owned business serving from the Greater Pittsburgh Region. It is our mission to provide quality and dependable service to businesses and homeowners alike.
