Cybersecurity has enormous implications for economic development in Nevada, including industries such as aerospace and defense, banking, healthcare, information technology, media, advanced manufacturing and online gaming, all of which are increasingly important components of Nevada's economy. Cybersecurity also has important implications for our power grid as well as for the large and growing tech presence in Nevada.

In order to tackle the growing challenges in cybersecurity, a collaborative and synergistic attempt is absolutely critical among the industries and the academia. Thus, we are in the process of organizing a University of Nevada, Reno Cybersecurity Conference involving local and regional industries and bringing them to University of Nevada, Reno for possible showcase opportunities.
