In April 2015, the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) became aware of a cybersecurity
incident affecting its systems and data that may have compromised the personal information of
current and former federal employees. (Incident #1)
OPM began conducting notifications to affected individuals using email and/or USPS First Class mail on June 8, 2015. Recognizing the inherent security concerns in this methodology, with OPM and CSID support, DoD suspended notifications to employees on June 11, 2015, until an improved, more secure notification and response process is in place. Late June 15, 2015, OPM advised that email notification resumed. Email notifications should be complete by June 22, 2015. U.S. Postal mail notifications will take longer.
