“Probes, Cyberattack Distract Atlanta as It Pitches Amazon,” The Wall Street Journal, May 29, 2018 A3.  Investigations of former mayor and the aftermath of a ransomware attack hamper efforts to entice Amazon to the city.

One assumes Atlanta has done a risk assessment and identified the risk of official misconduct.  Did it also capture the risk of a cyberattack?  Did the risk assessment suggest that if these risks occurred, Atlanta would lose the chance of phenomenal growth?
