OPM hack: U.S. has not notified 21.5 million victims of massive data breach

2015/07/15

Reuters - (National) A July 14 report revealed that the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) has yet to officially notify 21.5 million victims of a cyberattack discovered in May which exposed sensitive information disclosed in security clearance investigations. Multiple Federal agencies are working with OPM to develop a central system to inform victims, although officials reported this could be delayed for several weeks due to the complicated nature of the data.
