Gregory White, professor of computer science and director of the UTSA Center for Infrastructure Assurance and Security (CIAS), and Glenn Dietrich, professor of Information Systems and Cyber Security, will be part of the first class of leaders and pioneers in the cybersecurity industry in San Antonio.
The class will be officially inducted on Tuesday, August 23 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in conjunction with The CyberTexas Foundation.
White also serves as the Executive Director of the Information Sharing and Analysis Organization Standards Organization (ISAO SO). The ISAO SO, led by UTSA, was created in response to President Executive Order 13691 to create standards and guidelines to improve the cybersecurity posture of the nation.
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.
