Five members of the U.S. House of Representatives have sent a letter [PDF file] to TRICARE Management Authority asking for more information on the recent SAIC breach that affected 4.9 military personnel.

"In a series of questions, the legislators ask for details as to TRICARE’s policies and, in particular, any policies or contracts it had for SAIC," DataBreaches.net reports.

"Noting that SAIC had experienced at least six prior breaches, they also ask what steps TMA took since these breaches and what steps it will take to prevent future incidents," the article states.

Go to "Members of Congress wants answers from TRICARE Management on SAIC breach" to read the details.
