As an independent consultant I had a cup of coffee on a Dept of Energy (DOE) project about 18 years ago, long enough to get a contractor ID. Lo and behold, I just received a letter from the DOE that a "cyber incident" at the end of July compromised my name, SSN, and date of birth. Is that all? What can anybody do with that? (/sarcasm) In any case DOE is footing the bill for a free year of credit monitoring. I'm also going to put a fraud alert on my credit file. No untoward activity so far.
