OPM data breach update

from NARFE

The Office of Personnel Management and the Department of Defense revealed last week that fingerprint records of 5.6 million individuals were stolen in the OPM cyberattack announced earlier in the summer. This is up from the 1.1 million figure first reported when the data breaches were made public.

Federal experts believe that the misuse of fingerprint data is limited, but this could change over time. As the federal government learns more, it will provide additional information to affected individuals. Notifications to those impacted in the data breach surrounding background investigations will be sent starting at the end of this month. Nearly 22 million people will be notified in the coming weeks.

NARFE has a website dedicated to updating its members and providing resources on the data breaches. If NARFE members have additional questions, they should contact NARFE's Federal Benefits Service Department at fedbenefits@narfe.org or 703-838-7760. more
