Attorney General Chris Carr announced the release of a brand new resource for Georgia small businesses, non-profit organizations and houses of worship. The release of Cybersecurity in Georgia coincides with National Cybersecurity Awareness Month in October.
“Cybercrime and identity theft can have a huge impact on businesses and consumers alike – from the compromise of sensitive data to financial exploitation,” said Attorney General Chris Carr. “In today’s world, it is not if, but when, an attempt will occur, so we want all Georgia organizations to be as prepared as possible to safeguard their data and their customers’ data. Educational awareness is still the greatest protection against cyber threats, and our Consumer Protection Division compiled these best practices that business owners and organization managers can consider when implementing their own policies and procedures.”
Cybersecurity in Georgia provides information and tips about cyber threats, protecting your data and network, training employees about cybersecurity, planning for and responding to a security breach, cyber insurance and more.
The guide will be distributed throughout the state. Businesses can download the guide from the Consumer Protection Division’s website, CLICK HERE. To request a hard copy of the guide, please contact the Consumer Protection Division at (404) 656-3790.
