Summary: At present, Georgia does not have a general privacy act. Furthermore, the Court of Appeals of Georgia held, on 11 May 2018 in the case of Connell et al. v. Georgia Department of Labor, that there is no duty under Georgia law to safeguard personal information. However, Georgia does operate its own data breach notification law under the Georgia Personal Identity Protection Act under §10-1-911 et seq. of the Official Code of Georgia Annotated, which requires any information broker or data collector to notify a data breach to any resident whose unencrypted personal information was, or is reasonably believed to have been, acquired by an unauthorised person.
