What measures should be taken to mitigate similar and related risks in the future?

Talk about tangible and intangible recommendations.  What hardware or software can be used to protect assets?  What policies can be enacted and how can OPM better manage its data?  Perhaps a better incident response plan can be created.

Does OPM have a DMZ on its network?  Did they use an IDS or IPS to detect the intrusion?  If not either of these, perhaps that’s a recommendation.  We can also recommend using VPNs, TCBs, better authentication, improved encryption, or any other number of mechanisms if they didn’t already have them in place.
