Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee leaders have sent letters to the Obama administration as well as the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Office of Management and Budget and the Office of Personnel Management seeking answers to a breach that hit the U.S. Investigations Services (USIS) in August, GovInfoSecurity reports. The breach likely compromised the personal information of approximately 25,000 government employees. Committee Chairman Tom Carper (D-DE) and ranking member Tom Coburn (R-OK) wrote in the letter to DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson that the breach raises significant concerns, noting, "If you determine that additional tools and authorities are needed to further improve federal network security, we urge you to inform the committee as soon as possible.”
