No Loss of PII Reported in OPM Network Breach

Published, July 11, 2014

Recent media accounts have reported a breach of the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) network. At this time, neither OPM nor the United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT) has identified any loss of personally identifiable information for any users of OPM's internal or external systems. There is no need for additional action from employees and customers related to this incident.

Due to the constant monitoring systems in place at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and OPM, OPM leadership was alerted to a potential network intrusion of their network in mid-March. In collaboration with DHS and interagency partners, they acted immediately to mitigate the risks identified and ensure their systems are secure. OPM will continue monitoring for potential threats and protection to information and systems.
