ID Analytics will conduct data breach analysis for the Department of Veterans Affairs to ensure that personal information of millions of veterans and current members of the military was not misused, the department announced this week.

"Protecting veterans from fraud and abuse remains an important priority for VA," VA Secretary R. James Nicholson said in a press release this week. "Data breach analysis will provide VA with additional assurances that veterans' personal information remains unharmed."

Earlier this month, Montgomery County, Md., police announced the arrest of two men thought responsible for the May theft of the now infamous VA laptop.

Authorities said the two men did not target the laptop for the veterans' information.
