Kemp announces credit monitoring for Georgia voters in data breach

Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp announced Thursday plans to to offer free credit monitoring and identity theft restoration services for 6.2 million registered voters.

The announcement came more than two weeks after a massive data breach at the agency exposed those voters’ personal information including Social Security numbers and birth dates.

Kemp on the agency’s website said he has contracted with CSID for services that will be available within 10-14 business days. He said all Georgia voters will be enrolled automatically in free identity theft restoration services for one year. In addition, Georgia voters will have the opportunity to enroll in free credit monitoring services for one year.

When these services become available, direct links to CSID’s website will be listed on www.sos.ga.gov. Voter can also contact the agency at 404-654-6045.
