Nevada gambling regulators say they're moving toward a more Internet-centric regulation model due to the growth of online gambling.
Nevada Gaming Control Board chairman A.G. Burnett told the Senate Finance Committee Thursday that the department was making several employee structural changes to better reflect the level of online gambling.
Burnett said the department is transferring 10 positions from the investigations division into a number of other departments, including three who will now work cybercrime investigations.
Burnett also submitted a $4 million budget request to secure the board's online information system. He said that recent security breaches at large corporations like Sony and Home Depot had him worried about a similar situation happening to his agency.
You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
