New U.S. ‘secret’ clearance unit hires firm linked to 2014 hacks

“A U.S. government bureau set up to do ‘secret’ and ‘top secret’ security clearance investigations has turned for help to a private company whose login credentials were used in hack attacks that looted the personal data of 22 million current and former federal employees, U.S. officials said on Friday. Their confirmation of the hiring of KeyPoint Government Solutions by the new National Background Investigations Bureau (NBIB) comes just days ahead of the bureau’s official opening, scheduled for next week.”
