Washington, DC ’ Today, the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform held a hearing on the recent data breach at the U.S. Office of Personnel Management that has compromised the personal information of millions of federal employees. Rep. Ron DeSantis (FL-06), Chairman of the Subcommittee on National Security, issued the following statement:
“The hacking of the personnel records of millions of federal employees ’ including those in military and intelligence positions ’ represents an unmitigated disaster for U.S. national security. The witnesses before the House Oversight Committee raised more questions than they answered with their testimony. Our adversaries now have access to copious amounts of personnel data that can be used to harm U.S. interests. The administration seems to have no plan to either respond to or mitigate the damage from this cyberattack.”?
