ONLY ABOUT 100,000 FEDS WILL NEED TO TAKE SOME ACTION TO RE-ENROLL THEIR COVERAGE - November 7, 2016
OPM says fewer cyber breach victims need to re-enroll in credit monitoring services
By Nicole Ogrysko, Federal News Radio
Victims of the Office of Personnel Management’s cyber breach who enrolled in credit monitoring services with Winvale/CSID about 18 months ago will soon have to re-enroll for the same services with a new vendor.
About 100,000 to 150,000 people will need to take some kind of action and will receive mail notification letters from OPM soon, as their coverage under Winvale expires Dec. 1. OPM will notify all 600,000 people who were only impacted by the first of the agency’s cyber breaches that they can sign up for services.
