Default FEMA survivor privacy incident

I just received a letter from FEMA that said they have been oversharing sensitive Personally Indentifiable Information with contractors. 2.5 million people had addresses shared and 1.8 million of that group had banking info shared.

The program had not been active since 2008, but they shared the info with lodging providers even after they started paying the lodging providers directly.

They offer 18 months of credit monitoring and identity protection services.

IIRC this is the 2nd or 3rd time .gov has compromised my PII.

Everyone thought I was a fool for not standing in line for hours to get my "free" $1K food stamps after the flood a few years back.

This is one of the main reasons I did not.

Those were the times they were forced to admit it, I'd bet there are more leaks they haven't had to own up to yet.
