Greg Garcia

Executive Director

The Healthcare and Public Health Sector Coordinating Council

Greg was appointed by President George W. Bush as the nation’s first Assistant Secretary for Cyber Security and Communications at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security from 2006-2009, where he led the National Cyber Security Division, the National Communications System and the Office of Emergency Communications. Under Greg’s leadership, DHS was a key driver in developing the Bush Administration’s Comprehensive National Cyber Security Initiative (HSPD 23), the National Emergency Communications Plan, and the precursor to what became the National Cyber and Communications Integration Center (NCCIC), a public-private cyber threat intelligence and incident response .

After DHS, Garcia went on to create and lead Bank of America’s external partnership strategy for cyber security and identity management, then expanded his footprint to head the Financial Services Sector Coordinating Council (FSSCC), an industry partner to the government, developing policy and operational strategy for the security and resiliency of the financial system against cyber-attacks and other threats.

Greg has also served as professional staff for the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Science, where he shepherded enactment of the Cyber Security Research & Development Act of 2002, and led policy advocacy for the Information Technology Association of America, American Electronics Association, and 3Com Corporation, a Silicon Valley computer and communications networking company.

Greg has served on advisory boards of several security tech startups, on the Information Security and Privacy Advisory Board under the National Institute of Standards and Technology, and now on the Advisory Board of the National Security Institute at George Mason University's Antonin Scalia School of Law.
