1 min read

cybersecurityThe Defense Department is seeking permission from the Office of Management and Budget to gather minimal information about people affected by an Office of Personnel Management cyber attack.

DoD said in a notice posted Wednesday on Federal Register the department will also accept public comments on its planned data collection activity related to the breach of OPM’s background investigation records.

The department aims to identify and verify OPM data breach victims, as well as send PINs to individuals who are eligible to receive identity theft protection services.

The Defense Manpower Data Center would keep gathered information in a “holding file” and provide impacted federal employees and contractors access to an electronic portal where they can determine their protection eligibility, DoD said.
