PII
PII can be anything, other than nans and SSN, anything else such as DOB and home address? Those would be sensitive information too.

Has anyone else made a "cybersecurity isn't rocket science" joke yet?

Re: Reasons why these things continue to happen at Federal Agencies
And this is not just an issue with Federal agencies either. Many organizations view IT as non revenue generating and thus treat them in that manner. Meaning, cut, cut, cut even though IT is vital to the day to day operations & success of the organization.

Reasons why these things continue to happen at Federal Agencies
Unfortunately, these types of breaches and security issues plague many Federal Agencies, and will continue to do so in the foreseeable future.  The reasons for this are quite simple.  Federal Agencies are loathe to spend money on IT security because it is not central to their mission. Also, the pay structures of the federal government do not generally allow the agencies to pay what they need to pay for qualified IT security personnel.  That is not to say that there are not qualified IT security professionals in federal agencies.  There are quite a few.  But this is not the norm.  Even when there are qualified IT security professionals, they are often overruled in their attempts to increase security, either because of funding issues, or because their superiors do not care about security unless a breach is publicized and they become embarrassed.  In short, security is unimportant to most Directors of Federal Agencies.  They only care about fulfilling their core mission.
