Washington - MENA

The director of the US Office of Personnel Management (OPM) has resigned after a massive data breach involving more than 20 million people, the BBC reported Friday.

Katherine Archuleta said she would step down on Friday to help the department "move beyond the current challenges".

Authorities suspect that Chinese-based hackers targeted the computer systems of the OPM, which acts as the personnel office of the federal government.

Initially, the OPM said four million workers were affected by the breach.

However, the department disclosed on Thursday that the data of more than 20 million people, including current and former employees, may have been compromised.

Authorities in Beijing have publicly denied any involvement.

Ms Archuleta resignation comes a day after Democrats and Republicans in Congress called on her to step aside as the scope of the data breach expanded significantly.

Among the data targeted were forms used to vet potential employees of federal agencies including as the CIA and branches of the military.
