Gary R. Galloway

Name: Gary R. Galloway

Agency: Department of State 

Securing data from the inside. Galloway led a departmentwide effort to establish a data loss prevention program with just $2 million in economic stimulus funding -- and he took it on in addition to his normal workload. The program reduces the risks of data breaches and promotes a culture in which users take responsibility for protecting sensitive information. Galloway’s vision and persistence have resulted in a cost-effective system that is being embraced by State’s employees and serving as a model for other agencies. His work has spurred broader discussions about data protection and the issue of alleviating insider threats.
