Officials in Georgia held an inaugural summit at the new Cyber Center to arm participants with the tools to fight the growing threat of ransomware.

Cyber Dawg 2019, held in early May, brought together state, federal and international agencies to learn effective ways to respond to SAMSAM ransomware. Members of the Georgia National Guard replicated forms of the malware recovered from recent attacks on the Colorado Department of Transportation and the city of Atlanta. The inaugural event was held in the state’s new cybersecurity facility: the Georgia Cyber Center in Augusta. The 332,000-square-foot facility, composed of two buildings, was built to position Georgia as a national leader in cybersecurity.
