Cyber defense at White House agency getting worse.

In Security and Cyberattacks by Brainy Days Ahead

In March 2014, a devastating cyber attack on the White House Office of Personnel Management stole the sensitive personal information of some 25 million U.S. government employees, including millions of security clearance files, from the agency files and those of two of its important contractors. The fingerprint data of some 5.6 million of those employees was also stolen. Now a new report by the agency’s own Inspector General shows the agency’s efforts to provide adequate defenses against further cyber-intrusion are getting worse, not better.
