On October 28, 2020, Chatham County government identified a cyber incident that resulted in its network, email, and office phones being inoperable for an undetermined amount of time. Chatham County immediately notified authorities and continues to identify the extent of the incident.

Chatham County 911 communications were not impacted and continue to operate without issue. Chatham County early voting also was not affected in this incident.

We are working with law enforcement and support agencies so we can recover from this incident as soon as possible. Our priority is to restore our systems in a secure manner and maintain the provision of critical services. More information will be shared as it becomes available.
