Update to “What’s Up Next on the Hacking Block?”

On Friday, July 10, 2015, the Director of the Office of Personnel Management (“OPM”), Katherine Archuleta, resigned amid the two massive data breaches of OPM’s information technology systems that occurred within the last year. The breaches have affected approximately 22.1 million individuals. Beth Cobert, the Deputy Director of Management of the Office of Management and Budget, will replace Archuleta. Lawmakers have also called for the resignation of Donna Seymour, OPM’s Chief Information Officer, but it is not clear whether she will resign or remain the CIO.

Our Privacy & Data Security Group will continue to monitor and report on the implications of government data breaches.
