AFGE Bashes OPM in Full Page Print Ad

OPM’s “fan club” continues to grow in the wake of the two recent data breaches that hit the agency’s computer systems which left the personal data of nearly 26 million individuals exposed.

The American Federation of Government Employees took out a full page ad in Politico in which it said the Office of Personnel Management is keeping federal employees “in the dark about the data breach.”

Furthermore, AFGE demanded in the ad that OPM provide details to federal workers about the scope of the breach and what types of personal data were compromised, and it also said that OPM has to give impacted feds free lifetime credit monitoring, saying the 18 months being provided was inadequate.

Perhaps coincidentally, OPM has made progress on at least the first item in the list of AFGE’s demands when it released much more information about the breaches today.
