In 2015, the Office of Personnel Management discovered two network breaches, which compromised millions of background checks and personnel information. In November, the office brought in Clif Triplett as its senior cyber and information technology advisor. His job is to help prevent future large-scale cybersecurity problems. 

Clif Triplett has more than 30 years of management experience, often in the technological realm. After a distinguished military career in which he worked on the U.S. Nuclear Command and Control Systems, among other duties, Triplett moved to the private sector.
