Karim Said

Chief Information Security Officer

NASA

Karim Said is the Chief Information Security Officer at NASA Headquarters, but he prefers to go by “just one small part of the cybersecurity community at the neatest federal agency ever”, a distinction he’s carried proudly for 10 years and through various roles. Karim’s background is in software development and human-centered computing. He likes open source software, taking a break-it-build-it approach to code, and diving into NIST special publications.
