The Office of Personnel Management and the Department of Homeland Security took steps to mitigate the possible breach as soon as they learned of it, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said after The New York Times reported that Chinese perpetrators had penetrated computer networks containing personal information on all federal employees in March. “We have no reason to believe that any personally identifiable information was compromised,” she said, declining to directly confirm the account detailed in the Times. The White House offered a similar message.
