    Last fall, the U.S. Office of Personnel Management ended a contract with U.S. Investigations Services Inc., after USIS said it had "identified an apparent external cyber-attack on USIS' corporate network" in which personnel files for at least 27,000 federal employees were stolen by hackers later traced to China. "We are deeply disappointed with OPM's decision, particularly given the excellent work our 3,000 employees have delivered on these contracts," Virginia-based USIS said before shutting the business , laying off 1,200 workers in Grove City, Pa., and more than 1,300 elsewhere.
