VIDEO – Nevada Newsmakers: Highlights Upcoming CIS Webinar

A new Nevada statute, which becomes effective on January 1, 2021, will revise state requirements relating to personally identifiable information (PII) collected by governmental agencies. The new law will require a government agency, if it maintains records that contain PII about a resident of the state, to comply with specific global state-of-the-art cybersecurity best practices.

To support the implementation of the new statute, the Center for Internet Security, Inc. (CIS®) is pleased to announce a webinar panel titled, “How Nevada Can Spotlight its Leadership in Data Security,” on July 30, 2020 from 10:00-11:30 a.m. PST. The webinar will highlight the simplified and effective approach to improving cybersecurity adopted by the new Nevada law.

Nevada joins Ohio and California as the first states to define reasonable security. The law requires state agencies in Nevada to comply with the CIS Controls® or with the NIST Cybersecurity Framework as its minimum standard of information security. The CIS Controls can also provide a blueprint to private-sector organizations intending to voluntarily increase their cybersecurity posture.

How Nevada Can Spotlight its Leadership in Data Security,” will offer tips on how to implement the standards, and an overview of how the standards protect the data. The 90-minute session will consist of two panels: a government panel with Nevada Senator Heidi Gansert and Shaun Rahmeyer, Administrator, Nevada Office of Cyber Defense Coordination, and a private sector panel represented by various Nevada business leaders to include: Paul Enos, CEO, Nevada Trucking Association, Christian Moore, Attorney, Lemons Grundy & Eisenberg, and Dr. John Soumi, DDS, YouCall MD.
