Nevada Cybersecurity Regulation 5
Nevada Cybersecurity Regulation 5 is a new set of rules adopted by the Nevada Gaming Commission (NGC) on December 22, 2022, that creates new cybersecurity requirements for certain gaming operators in Nevada. The regulation aims to protect the personal information of patrons and employees, as well as the information systems of gaming operators, from the ongoing threat of cyberattacks.
Why Nevada is adopting these new regulations
The Nevada Gaming Commission is adopting the new regulations, to address the increasing threat of cyberattacks on gaming operators in Nevada. Cybersecurity threats, including data breaches and ransomware attacks, have become more sophisticated and frequent in recent years, posing a significant risk to the personal information of patrons and employees, as well as the information systems of gaming operators.
The regulations aim to protect the gaming industry’s reputation and the state’s economy, as the gaming industry is a significant contributor to Nevada’s economy. The NGC recognizes that the implementation of robust cybersecurity measures will help to ensure the integrity of gaming operations in Nevada and protect the state’s gaming industry’s long-term viability. The adoption of Nevada Cybersecurity Regulation 5 is a proactive measure by the Nevada Gaming Commission to safeguard against the threat of cyberattacks and maintain public trust in the gaming industry.

Who does Nevada Cybersecurity Regulation 5 apply to?
Nevada Cybersecurity Regulation 5 is applicable to certain covered entities that hold gaming licenses such as nonrestricted licenses, race and sports book licenses, and interactive gaming licenses in Nevada. The regulation is intended to ensure that these entities implement adequate cybersecurity measures to safeguard their customers’ personal and financial data against cyber threats.
What are the main requirements of Nevada Cybersecurity Regulation 5?
The new regulation sets out several requirements for covered entities in Nevada. These companies must take steps to protect their information systems from cyber threats, comply with relevant state laws, and conduct risk assessments using best practices to reduce the risk of cyber attacks. Additionally, they must continuously monitor their cybersecurity risks and report significant attacks to the Nevada Gaming Control Board within 72 hours. Companies must also maintain written records of their compliance with the regulation for at least five years. The goal of the regulation is to ensure that these companies prioritize the protection of their customers’ sensitive information against cyber threats.

Cyber attacks are a major concern for organizations of all sizes due to the ever-growing dependence on technology and the internet. To be prepared for any potential cyber threats, businesses should use a human-implemented cyber attack emulation as a proactive measure.
