OPM Director Resigns Over Huge Data Hack

The head of the US government’s personnel office has resigned in the wake of a massive data breach on her watch.
A White House official said President Barack Obama accepted the resignation of Office of Personnel Management director Katherine Archuleta on Friday morning. Archuleta’s resignation comes the day after her agency disclosed that hackers stole the personal information of more than 21 million people. Previous government estimates of how many were affected by the breach were far smaller.
Members of Congress in both parties had demanded Archuleta’s resignation.
