Insider at Bureau of Tobacco and Firearms Breached Colleagues Privacy?

The Justice Department is investigating whether an executive at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) improperly accessed and downloaded the personal information of colleagues. It is not clear how many employees may have been affected by the possible breach.

The investigation is centering on whether the executive sent ATF employee data from his work email to his personal email account. It seems the breaches were discovered by a third party.

"It was not immediately clear how many employees were affected by the possible [insider] breach."
