Privacy pioneer. In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, Leckey pushed for ways to make disaster victims' information more accessible to local responders in the field without sacrificing privacy and security. He also deployed full-time for several weeks to the storm-stricken coastline as a recovery worker while still fulfilling his duties as chief privacy officer. Among his other pioneering privacy efforts at FEMA, Leckey led the agency's Social Security Reduction Initiative, which resulted in a 22 percent decrease in agencywide collection of Social Security numbers.
