The Department of Homeland Security announced a data breach that may have compromised the personal information of current and former Federal employees, specifically affected were the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) and the Interior Department. This breach did not impact the personnel records of Exchange associates—Exchange personnel records are maintained internally.
If you previously served in another part of the federal government, OPM has published an information paper regarding the incident on their website: http://www.opm.gov/news/latest-news/announcements/. We will keep you informed as more information becomes available.
