Full Letter from Jason Chaffetz, Chairman and Michael Turner, Member Available on the Oversight and Government Reform Committee’s Website

On April 21, 2015, at Office of Personnel Management (OPM) headquarters in Washington, D.C., CyTech demonstrated its high speed forensic incident response tool, called “CyFIR.”  The next day, an analysis of results produced by the CyFIR demonstration revealed malicious code on OPM’s network.  CyTech subsequently provided incident response assistance to OPM, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Team.  CyTech assistance included performing SQL Data Base and evidence acquisition using the CyFIR tool.
