The U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) recently became aware of a cyber security incident affecting its systems and data that may have compromised the personal information of current and former Federal employees.
Since the incident was identified, OPM has partnered with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT), and the Federal Bureau of Investigation to determine the impact to Federal personnel. And OPM immediately implemented additional security measures to protect the sensitive information it manages.
Beginning June 8 and continuing through June 19, OPM will be sending notifications to approximately 4 million individuals whose Personally Identifiable Information was potentially compromised in this incident. The email will come from firstname.lastname@example.org and it will contain information regarding credit monitoring and identity theft protection services being provided to those Federal employees impacted by the data breach. In the event OPM does not have an email address for the individual on file, a standard letter will be sent via the U.S. Postal Service.
Additional information is available beginning at 8 a.m. CST on June 8, 2015 on the company's website, www.csid.com/opm, and by calling toll-free 844-222-2743.
