WV AG Warns Residents Of Data Breach

June 11th, 2015 by WCBC Radio

Attorney General Patrick Morrisey is encouraging West Virginia residents to watch their accounts and information to see if they were possibly affected by the recent Federal Government Office of Personnel Management breach.
The computer networks at the Office of Personnel Management, or OPM, were recently hacked and could have possibly compromised the information of about 4 million current and former federal employees. According to Workforce West Virginia, approximately 23,000 people work for the federal government in West Virginia.
“We encourage West Virginians who may have been affected by this breach to use some of the tools the OPM has put in place,” Attorney General Morrisey said. “Current or former Federal employees in the state should also carefully review bank accounts, invoices, and statements to make sure everything is correct.”
