Matthew Masterson, former chairman of the U.S. Election Assistance Commission, has been named senior adviser for the Department of Homeland Security‘s cybersecurity unit, Washington Examiner reported Monday.

DHS expects Masterson to continue working with federal, state and local officials to protect election systems against cyber threats.

He served as EAC commissioner for nearly four years, following his nomination by then-President Barack Obama and subsequent confirmation by the Senate in late 2014.

Masterson previously held various positions within the Ohio secretary of state’s office, where he managed voting system certification procedures and led the development of online voter registry and ballot delivery platforms for military and overseas voters.
