Georgia Identity Theft and Cybercrime Protection

With funding and support from the National Identity Theft Victims Assistance Network, we launched the Georgia Identity Theft & Cybercrime Coalition (GITCC) in 2019. The GITCC convenes service providers, stakeholders, community leaders, and subject matter experts from around the state to protect consumers from identity theft and cybercrime. If you are interested in joining the coalition, please contact bhaynes@georgiawatch.org.
