  1. Government to spend as much as $330 million to plug holes in cyber security defenses

    WASHINGTON, 2 Sept. 2015. The U.S. government is ready to spend as much as $330 million to plug holes in cyber security defenses to repair data breach damage from a computer hack in July of U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) computers that compromised the personal data of 21.5 million government workers. Officials of the Naval Sea Systems Command in Washington announced a $133.3 million contract Tuesday to ID Experts in Portland, Ore., for commercially available data breach recovery services in response to the OPM data breach. That contract has options that could bring its value to $330 million. The hack of government computers, announced in July compromised 21.5 million Social Security numbers of federal employees -- 19.7 million of which belonged to people like DOD personnel who had undergone background investigations. The remaining 1.8 million records belonged to family members. Data stolen involved detailed, sensitive background information such as employment history, relatives, addresses, past drug abuse or emotional disorders, and even fingerprints. Related: Cyber warfare ushers in 5th dimension of human conflict ID Experts will provide credit and identity monitoring, identity theft insurance, identity restoration, and call center services. Naval Sea Systems Command is awarding the contract on behalf of the U.S. General Services Administration. ID Experts prevailed over four other bidders. On this contract ID Experts will do the work in Portland, Ore., and should be finished in December 2018 if the government exercises all contract options.
