Welcome to CyberSmartNV
Cyber Professionals

Fighting cyber-crime is not an easy job and it is not a task the average citizen of Nevada is equipped to tackle. That is where you, cybersecurity professionals, come in.

Cybersecurity professionals are valuable members of their communities. Most Nevadan’s do not comprehend the role cyber professionals play in their lives. From protecting citizen’s digital identities, securing their financial information, to the ever evolving tasks of protecting innovations such as smart cities, all these things, and plenty more, rely on cyber professionals.

If you know of any Cybersecurity resources that CyberSmartNV may have missed – please submit them here. Once reviewed, they may be added to the resource section. Additionally, if you find a resource that is not working, please let the admins know ASAP. “Contact CyberSmartNV Admin.”
