Nearly six months after the government discovered a massive breach of federal employees’ personal data, the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is finalizing notices to more than 21 million people whose records were compromised. To aid the enormous effort, a new web site released this month aims to answer victims’ questions and offer identity theft services. But so far, a relatively low number of people have signed up, and some federal workers remain leery of OPM’s data security. Kojo finds out where the government stands in its effort to notify those who were hacked, learns how OPM is addressing its future cyber security, and explores what steps those affected by the breach should take after they receive a government notice.
