FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Thompson, Jackson-Lee Inquire on TSA Data Breach

December 8, 2009 (WASHINGTON) – Today, Rep. Bennie G. Thompson (D-MS), Chairman of the Committee on Homeland Security, and Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-TX), Chairwoman of the Committee’s Subcommittee on Transportation Security and Infrastructure Protection, sent a letter to Gale Rossides, Acting Administrator of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) inquiring about a recent breach of sensitive information on the internet regarding transportation security screening procedures.



According to a public announcement made by TSA, the Screening Management Standard Operating Procedures manual was “improperly posted by the agency to the Federal Business Opportunities Web site wherein redacted material was not properly protected.‪” Although TSA has removed the document from the government contracting website, several online sources have compromised the document by uploading it on to their websites.
