A major Washington, D.C. national-security whistleblowers organization says it’s bolstering security after a suspicious break-in last week.

Danielle Brian, executive director of the Project on Government Oversight, which specializes in exposing waste, fraud and abuse at the Pentagon, says it’s taking new measures to protect its confidential sources after a Feb. 11-12 overnight break-in, in which the main door and a file cabinet were jimmied open but dozens of computers and other valuable office equipment were left untouched.  

“Maybe this was more of an attempt at intimidation than anything else,” Brian told The Washington Post on Sunday, two days after Newsweekreported the break-in.

“‘The good news is that because of the work we do, we’ve long taken precautionary measures to protect our information,” Brian added. “Now we’ll be taking additional precautions, both physically and digitally. Our principal concern is protecting the identity of our sources of information.”

POGO, as its generally known, is a private organization that has conducted several sensitive investigations in recent months, including a critical report on a controversial Pentagon leak investigation.
