Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp

Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp announced today that the state will offer one year of free credit monitoring and identify protection services to all Georgia voters whose personal information was leaked by his office. 

Enrollment in the free plan is available through February 14, 2015, and coverage will last through Dec. 31, Kemp said in a news release. 

"While I am confident that every voters' personal data is secure, these services are being offered to provide Georgia voters with peace of mind," said Secretary of State Brian Kemp.

Kemp's office leaked 12 disks of voter information containing social security numbers, drivers license information and other information outside of the organization, but he later said that all disks had been recovered. 

His office later fired an employee who was identified as being responsible for the leak, but that employee told the Atlanta Journal Constitution that the breach wasn't his fault. 

The information was sent to political parties and media organizations who subscribe to the state's voter rolls.
