ICIT Talking Points: “Is the OPM Data Breach the Tip of the Iceberg?” – for the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology

Throughout June 2015, the United States Office of Personnel Management failed to adequately answer inquiries from the American people, Congress, and Federal agencies, concerning the two breaches of its systems that have left the granular personal information of 22.1 million United States Citizens in the hands of an unidentified adversary.  After review of the July 8, 2015 hearing entitled “Is the OPM Data Breach the Tip of the Iceberg?” ICIT is submitting the following Talking Points to provide additional support to the Committee and its Subcommittees as they continue to investigate the OMB breaches.  ICIT appreciates the opportunity to advise the United States Federal Government on several lines of inquiry concerning the OPM breaches, and proactive directions that will help citizens mitigate the threat posed by the compromised information, and help the United States to advance its cyber-security position.
