Faisal Kaleem named advisory board member, National Cybersecurity Student Association

Faisal Kaleem, Associate Professor, Information and Computer Sciences department, was named as a member of the Advisory Board for the first ever National Cybersecurity Student Association (NCSA). Only nine board members are appointed nationally.


The NCSA is dedicated to enhancing the educational and professional development of cybersecurity students through activities, networking and collaboration. This group supports the cybersecurity educational programs of academic institutions, inspires career awareness and encourages creative efforts to increase the number of underrepresented populations in the field.

Kaleem was also appointed to serve as a member of the program committee for the 2016 National Initiative on Cybersecurity Education (NICE) conference, Nov. 1–2, Kansas City, Mo. The NICE conference features thought leaders from education, government, industry and non-profits who are addressing the cybersecurity education, training, and workforce needs of the nation.

“I truly appreciate all the support, help and exposure Metro State provided me to achieve these national designations,” said Kaleem. “I am proud to be part of Metro State community.”
