U.S. Office Of Personnel Management Victim Of Large Scale Data Hack

Instead of concentrating on "response to cyberattacks," our government really should be working on better defenses to prevent attacks in the first place.

The Office of Personnel Management appointed a new cyber and information technology adviser on Wednesday, part of its plan to strengthen cybersecurity after hackers compromised the personal information of 21 million federal workers. Clifton Triplett, who has advised Fortune 200 companies in a range of industries and has a military background, will help coordinate the agency's response to cyberattacks and complete its plan to mitigate future incidents.
