Loss of Farmers' Social Security Numbers is a Major Cause for Concern (Rep. Zack Space)

This type of personal privacy breach is very disturbing. These individuals may now be at risk to all sorts of security problems including identity theft and fraud. Taking into account all of the security risks associated with the internet, it is unthinkable that federal government agencies can continue to make this type of information available to the public. It is essential that we get to the bottom of why this happened so that we can immediately make the appropriate actions to prevent this from ever happening again.
