On June 4th, OPM announced a data breach and its plan to notify approximately 4 million individuals whose personally identifiable information (PII) may have been compromised. OPM’s data center is housed by the U.S. Department of the Interior.

The full extent of the data breach, including who was affected and what information was accessed, is still unknown.
