The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee will examine the recent U.S. Postal Service (USPS) data breach during a hearing next Wednesday.
The hearing was expected, as the committee’s top members have all pressed USPS for more information since the agency revealed on Monday a cyber attack that had exposed the information of 800,000 employees.
Oversight Committee Chair Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) said the Postal Service knew about the hack in September, but waited until late October to confidentially brief the committee.
USPS only told employees this week their personal information was at risk.
