John Pezold's thoughts

SB 117 clarifies the code as it relates to the Georgia Technology Authority (GTA) in order for the state to purchase cyber insurance. It reflects current practices by adding the General Assembly, the Dept. of Defense, and elected Constitutional officers to the list of government entities not supported by GTA.

The bill also requires GTA to establish technology policies and standards for all agencies they serve. These policies shall include, but not be limited to, the role and responsibilities of chief information officers and chief information security officers within such agencies.
