Staff Analysis of the Legislation

SB 52 adds a new article to Chapter 1 of Title 10 of the OCGA to provide an affirmative defense for businesses against cybersecurity related tort claims, given that they use cybersecurity programs which meet the reasonable administrative, technical, and physical safeguards enumerated within the bill. The bill does not create a minimum cybersecurity standard and may not be used to impose liability upon businesses that do not satisfy the practices in compliance with the article.
