Gov. Kristi Noem delivers her 2023 State of the State Address at the Capitol building in Pierre.

Gov. Kristi Noem says her personal cell phone has been hacked following a federal data breach.

The governor’s social security number and other private information was mistakenly released in a recent report from the Jan. 6 Commission.

Noem said that breach led to her phone getting hacked. Her phone number is now being used to make hoax calls, according to a press release from the governor's office.

She previously called for the U.S. Attorney General to investigate the breach.
