White’s career has spanned over three decades in computer and network security. He served 30 years in the Air Force and Air Force Reserves, and helped build the nation’s first undergraduate information warfare laboratory at the U.S. Air Force Academy. At UTSA, he continues to develop and teach courses on computer and network security.
Dietrich was a co-founder and the first director of the CIAS, and also helped to develop the information assurance program in the UTSA College of Business. He has been instrumental in developing minors in technology management, digital forensics and data center and network management. He is the lead researcher for UTSA’s Cyber P3 Initiative, which works to train army reservists to fill critical cybersecurity positions with the federal government.
With White and Dietrich’s considerable contributions, UTSA’s cybersecurity programs have grown to become among the top-ranked in the nation. UTSA was ranked as one of the top two graduate cybersecurity programs in the nation by Universities.com and was ranked first by the Ponemon Institute.
