WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.), Chairman of the Senate Commerce Subcommittee for Consumer Protection and Data Security, today responded to the resignation of Office of Personnel Management (OPM) Director Katherine Archuleta:

“While leadership certainly matters, the resignation of the OPM Director does not reduce the damage caused by this data breach. The 22 million Americans who have had their personal privacy violated and sensitive information stolen by hackers continue to wait for answers from OPM and the administration. We need to know the true scope of the OPM data breach, how this happened, what is being done to protect the victims from criminal activity, and what steps are being taken not only at OPM – but across all federal government agencies – to make certain we are safeguarded from future cyber-attacks. It is past time for the accountability and answers needed to restore Americans’ confidence that their families and our national security are not at risk.”
