The head of the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) Katherine Archuleta had to resign after discovering that two separate data breaches had potentially affected many more records than was previously believed.


Her position will be taken on an acting basis by Beth Cobert, deputy director of the Office of Management and Budget and a former senior partner at McKinsey. A few days ago it turned out that the breach of OPM security clearance records had exposed sensitive data on up to 19.7m applicants for government jobs and 1.8m relatives.

Worse still, a separate breach followed, which is believed to have compromised sensitive data of 4.2m current and former federal employees. It is not yet known whether these people are the same who were also targeted in the first breach. The government claimed it was considering ways to tighten data security, like requiring two-factor authentication, limiting the number of privileged users and maintaining logs.

The Office of Personnel Management will now be seeking for a permanent new director for the department, although media reports suggest that Cobert’s experience at McKinsey allows her to start the necessary reforms. It should be noted that just a few days ago, Katherine Archuleta claimed she would not resign over the data breach by suspected Chinese users. However, the rising scale of the crisis has prompted fierce criticism from lawmakers. There were suggestions that the change in leadership was also an acknowledgement that the authorities can’t just place blame on some Chinese hackers, but need to take some steps for the protection of personal data, which is often the first target of the hackers.

edddy avatar"The government claimed it was CONSIDERING" really, they only considering to safeguard personnel info, that is rich coming from the country who spends trillion on security.
"two-factor authentication, limiting the number of privileged users" o.k let me get that straight, they think a Chinese hacker did the breach and the going to punish the employees.
please, somebody help me to understand this reasoning.
