The Nevada Gaming Control board has announced that it is re-structuring itself to help account for the growth of online betting in the Silver State.
The NGCB is adapting by re-assining ten employees to other divisions, including three to the cybercrime investigations unit. The group will also restructure its online information system, as it submitted a $4 million request in its budget. The renovation of the information system would help the NGCB avoid a cyberattack, which recently injured big name firms such as Home Depot and Sony.
Commenting on the possibility of a cyberattack NGCB Chairman A.G. Burnett said, “I’m extremely concerned that the data could be penetrated and stolen. The last thing I want on my watch is for that to happen.”
