In the spring of 2015, the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) became aware of unprecedented compromises to government employee personal data. While the full scope of the data breaches is unknown, at a minimum they impact current and former federal employees including Department of the Navy personnel. OPM, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) are continuing to investigate the extent of these intrusions. As the investigation moves forward, it is likely that the list of those affected individuals could grow to include a significant number of current and former military members. While the spectrum of risk to affected individuals is also not fully known, it is reasonable to assume it includes identity theft at a minimum.
