OPM Breach Notification Letter

OPM Notification and Response

Today I received a breach notification letter from the US Office of Personnel Management.  My wife received one, too.  We are affected because we have both been subject to background investigations for our clearances.  (See my blog post on the OPM intrusion: OPM Breach Blog Post)

As part of OPM breach response, OPM is offering the following services:

  • Credit Monitoring Service
  • Identity Monitoring Service
  • Identity Theft Insurance
  • Identity Theft Restoration Service

These services are being offered for three years.

Information Compromised

According to the letter the following information about me (and my wife) has been compromised from the OPM Background Investigation Database:

  • Name
  • Social Security Number
  • Address
  • Date and Place of Birth
  • Residency History
  • Educational History
  • Employment History
  • Personal Foreign Travel History
  • Information about others:
    • Immediate Family
    • Business Contacts
    • Personal Acquaintances
  • “…other information used to conduct and adjudicate your background investigation.”

Other information listed as “likely compromised”:
