Uber Technologies Inc named Matt Olsen as its chief security officer, the ride-hailing company’s Chief Executive Officer Dara Khosrowshahi said in a tweet on 14 August.

Khosrowshahi hired Olsen, a former general counsel of the US National Security Agency, in November following a breach in 2016 that exposed the data of some 57 million users of the ride-sharing service.
Uber had fired its chief security officer, Joe Sullivan, and a deputy, Craig Clark, in November over their role in the handling of the incident.
