Matt Olsen, Uber Technologies Inc.’s chief trust and security officer and a veteran of Washington’s national security circles, is expected to be nominated to serve as head of the Justice Department’s National Security Division, according to people familiar with the matter.
The White House plans to nominate Mr. Olsen in the coming days, one of the people said, to the division that oversees sensitive national security cases, including those involving terrorism, counterintelligence threats and export controls violations. He would lead the division as it confronts extremist violence, foreign interference in U.S. elections and ransomware cyberattacks, which the DOJ sees as rising threats.
