According to the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3), Georgians lost more than $322 million to cyber-enabled crime last year alone. Nationwide, those losses topped $10 billion. That has led Attorney General Chris Carr, his Prosecution Division and the Georgia Cyber Fraud Task Force to step up the fight against cybercrime across the state.

“Phishing scams, data breaches, and malware pose very real threats to Georgia businesses and consumers,” said Carr. “Through the work of our Prosecution Division and the Georgia Cyber Fraud Task Force, we’re continuing our efforts to ensure those who enable cyber-fraud schemes are held accountable for their actions. Now more than ever, it’s imperative that Georgians take proactive steps to protect their data and devices, and our office offers a wealth of information to help start that process.”
