The State Bar of Georgia recently disclosed that it was the victim of a cybersecurity incident in April 2022, when an unauthorized individual accessed its systems and compromised the data of current and former employees and “some members of the State Bar.”
The incident included unauthorized disclosure of individuals’ names, addresses, dates of birth, Social Security numbers, driver’s license numbers, direct deposit information, or name change information.
The announcement by the State Bar did not specify whether members’ driver’s license information or Social Security numbers are in its possession or if that compromised information was the employees’ or members’ information. If so, it is curious that the State Bar would have that sensitive information of members in its possession. Although the announcement states only some members’ information was compromised, it is offering credit monitoring and identity protection services to all current and former employees as well as all of its members.
