All GSA Staff Social Security Numbers Accidentally E-mailed Out

A GSA employee accidentally sent the names and Social Security numbers of the agency’s entire staff of over 12,000 people to a private e-mail address.

GSA notified employees of the breach via security alert e-mails, “which employees said they received frequently and often ignored.”

Sounds like a strong culture of information security at GSA!

Casey Coleman (GSA CIO, pictured) and Gail Lovelace (GSA Chief Human Capital Officer) later sent letters via the postal mail to warn employees of the privacy breach.
