October is Cyber Security Awareness Month

The convenience that technology brings makes everyday life simpler, but also makes it easier for criminals to perpetrate financial crimes through the theft of personal data and use of malicious software. The Georgia Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency is recognizing October as Cyber Security Awareness Month, and is encouraging citizens across the state to learn how to secure their information through computers, mobile phones and other devices.  For tips and tools to get your family and community cyber prepared, visit www.gema.georgia.gov/plan-prepare/ready-georgia
