The Office of the National Cyber Director (ONCD) has appointed Camille Stewart Gloster as the new deputy national cyber director (NCD) for Technology and Ecosystem Security.

Gloster – who brings to the role years of cybersecurity expertise – will lead ONCD’s ongoing efforts to strengthen the security and development of the nation’s cyber ecosystem – across people, processes, and technology.

“We need top talent in the government to meet the dynamic and complex cyber challenges we face as a nation. We are excited to welcome Camille to ONCD,” said NCD Chris Inglis in the White House’s announcement of the appointment.

“She is a pioneer who has led on cyber issues for more than a decade at the highest levels of government and industry,” Inglis continued. “The depth and breadth of her experiences will help the Biden-Harris Administration advance key priorities, including promoting the resilience of our software and hardware supply chain, building a more diverse cyber workforce, and strengthening cyber education for all Americans.”

Gloster’s career has spanned the private, public, and non-profit sectors. She comes to ONCD from Google, where she most recently served as Global Head of Product Security Strategy, and before that as Head of Security Policy and Election Integrity for Google Play and Android.

Before her tenure at Google, Gloster served in the Obama-Biden Administration at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Gloster is also the co-founder of #ShareTheMicInCyber, which aims to highlight the need for increased diversity in the cyber field.

“In the field of cybersecurity, Camille is regarded as not only an expert but also as an inspiration, especially to women and underrepresented minorities. She will be an asset to our team as we seek to strengthen the cybersecurity of our Nation, its citizens, and its technology,” Principal Deputy NCD Kemba Walden said.
