Bryan Ware

Ware brings extensive government and business experience, with a particular focus on infrastructure security and policy.

Ware served as the Assistant Secretary for Cybersecurity for the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA). In this role, Ware was responsible for protecting country’s critical infrastructure from cyber threats and attacks. He also led initiatives to identify, understand, and mitigate the impact of evolving risks and emerging technologies on homeland security efforts with a coordinated, whole-of-Department approach to these issues.

Before public office, Ware was a successful entrepreneur, as the founder of an artificial intelligence company which was acquired by Haystax in 2013. After serving as CTO of Haystax, Ware took over as CEO of Haystax in 2016 until its acquisition in 2018.

“We are very excited to have Bryan advising LookingGlass on its next generation of cybersecurity products and business strategy. Bryan’s leadership at DHS, especially in developing policy to reduce national risks and to improve both critical infrastructure cybersecurity and federal network security, means he can provide unique and valuable insight in helping bolster the security and resilience of the global cyber ecosystem,” said LookingGlass President and Chief Operating Officer, Don Gilberg.

“The public sector continues to grapple with an aging computing infrastructure, and therefore a large attack surface. Reducing and combatting this critical cybersecurity risk is paramount and must be done in collaboration with industry innovators. I have seen LookingGlass’s solutions in action, and I am confident in their vision and track record for helping the federal government meet its cybersecurity missions. I look forward to helping with product strategy and advocating, along with other Advisory Board members, for critical capabilities to strengthen the LookingGlass portfolio,” added Ware.
