Hi, I am Faisal Khalid!
I am currently working in Deloitte Advisory’s Cyber Risk practice based out of Chicago. I just recently graduated from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a degree in Computer Science and Economics.
During my time in University, I had the wonderful opportunity to be an admin at SIGPwny, the official UIUC cybersecurity club, where I helped plan out social events, organize meetings, maintain corporate relationships, and secure funding. I also had the opportunity to participate in Professor Matthew Caesar’s Internet of Things (IoT) Systems Research Group where I lead the security and infastructure teams, collaborated with multiple other teams, and prepared our product for public release. I spent my spare time hanging out with friends, training in boxing/muay-thai/jiu-jitsu gyms, and operating a fun little side business selling collectible swords and knives.
My main goal in life is to be part of something bigger than myself and to serve the country by building, improving, and securing critical technological infrastructure.
