Gilmer County Government services impacted by ransomware incident

By AccessWDUN Staff

Gilmer County is the latest Georgia county to be impacted by a ransomware incident following a major cyberattack against Fulton County earlier in 2024.

A notice posted on the Gilmer County Government website said it recently detected and responded to the ransomware incident.

As a result, the county said it has taken impacted systems offline while it works to secure and restore services safely. 

"In the meantime, the public should expect delays from the county as a result," the notice said.

"We are actively monitoring the situation and sending updated information as it becomes available."

AccessWDUN is working to find out more about the situation.
