    The Office of Personnel Management announced Wednesday it will upgrade its cybersecurity measures after major breaches of federal employees' personal information.

    Officials will hire a cybersecurity advisory, overhaul its information technology department and review the encryption of databases.

    The personal information of as many as 4.2 million current, former and prospective federal employees was compromised in recent hacks. OPM did not confirm that figure in its report Wednesday.
