It now appears as if the Office of Personnel Management was hit with two major data thefts. One affected not 4 million current and former federal employees, as OPM first believed, but more like 14 million. The second theft took highly sensitive information about millions of people with security clearance, data from the so-called SF 86 forms. Cyber Expert Rodney Joffe, vice president and fellow at Neustar, joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to explain what this means if you are cleared, as well as for the agencies using cleared people.
