UTSA's Greg White and Chip Meadows named ISSA Distinguished Fellows
(March 6, 2014) -- The Information Systems Security Association (ISSA) has named UTSA Associate Professor Greg White and Senior Information Security Analyst Chip Meadows among its newest class of Distinguished Fellows. White and Meadows were among seven people nationwide to receive the honor, presented recently at a reception in San Francisco.
White entered the U.S. Air Force in 1980, retiring in 2010 as a colonel in the U.S. Air Force Reserve. He joined UTSA as the technical director of the Center for Infrastructure Assurance and Security (CIAS) in 2001 and became the director in 2005. The CIAS offers cyber security preparedness exercises and training to educate U.S. governments and organizations.
It also founded and organizes the National Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition, which has grown to become the nation's largest collegiate cyber security challenge. White has served as a faculty member in both UTSA information systems and computer science departments. He is currently an associate professor of computer science.
In the UTSA Office of Information Security, Meadows leads the team that is responsible for securing the perimeter of UTSA networks. He has more than 25 combined years in the information technology security, audit and compliance, and information technology spaces and has served in the financial services, academic, military, medical and retail sectors.
He is a sought-after speaker and has presented at numerous local, national and international conferences as well as various certification preparatory workshops. He is a past president of the Alamo ISSA chapter and the San Antonio chapter of the Information Systems Audit and Control Association.
ISSA is an international community of cyber security professionals dedicated to advancing managing technology risk, protecting critical information and infrastructure, and promoting professional growth. Twice each year, it recognizes a class of Fellows and a class of Distinguished Fellows for their efforts in advancing the professionalism, stature and influence of information security professionals. Distinguished Fellows must have 12 or more years of ISSA membership to their credit including significant time as ISSA association leaders and 10 years of documented exceptional service to the security community.
Just a week ago, UTSA was named the top university in the nation for its cyber security programs, according to a survey conducted by the Ponemon Institute for Hewlett-Packard.
Additionally, UTSA is a recognized leader in infrastructure assurance and security by the National Security Agency and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
