The event, Cybercrime in Georgia: How cybercriminals are actively targeting Georgia’s business community, discussed cybercrime’s impact on Georgia’s business community and methods used by criminals to perpetrate fraud. The discussion was led by Steve Foster, Special Agent in Charge (SAC) of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation’s (GBI) Georgia Cyber Crime Center (G3C) in Augusta, Georgia. SAC Foster supervises a staff of 11 who fulfill the GBI’s mission to conduct cybercrime investigations and digital device forensic examinations and to provide cybercrime-related training to state and local law enforcement. SAC Foster helped develop G3C and currently oversees the ongoing growth of the unit. SAC Foster is in his 25th year with the GBI and has 31 years in law enforcement. During the presentation, he also discussed the challenges of law enforcement in finding and prosecuting cybercriminals and how businesses should be vigilant about educating employees and monitoring for cybercriminal activity.
