DISA Notifies Service Members of Potential Data Breach

1 min read

The Defense Information Systems Agency sent letters to service personnel notifying them of a potential breach of some of their personal data on a DISA-hosted system, NBC News reported Friday.

A breach of the system in May and June of last year may have compromised the service members’ Social Security numbers and other personal information, according to the letter dated Feb. 11.

The Department of Defense said the breach could have affected approximately 200,000 people. Chuck Prichard, a spokesman for DoD, said the breach has been addressed since its discovery through a routine security check and there was no sign of any potential misuse of personal data.
