Fulton County Restores Services After Cybersecurity Incident

1 min read

Following a cybersecurity incident earlier this year that caused widespread outages, Fulton County has made significant progress in restoring services to its residents.

Telephones across the organization have been fully restored, allowing for smoother communication channels.

Public access to the Fulton County Property Tax System is now back online, enabling residents to complete property tax payments through the Fulton County Tax Commissioner’s website or by phone.

Additionally, property record access and other functionalities of the Tax Assessors’ office are now available through the Fulton County Tax Assessors website.

Access to Fulton County court filings is now open to the public through Research Georgia, which includes filings for Superior, State, Magistrate, and Probate Court. E-filing is also available for most courts, except for File and Serve Express through State Court.

Although some filings made since the incident may not yet be accessible, restoration efforts are ongoing. Residents are encouraged to contact the respective court they are interacting with for more information.

Background checks conducted by the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office and Police Department were unaffected by the incident. However, third-party background checks accessed through court records were impacted. Companies conducting these checks are advised to use the re:SearchGA platform for record searches.

For additional information or to connect with other Fulton County services, residents can email customerservice@fultoncountyga.gov or call 404-612-4000.
