This training will take the place of the in-person training that the organization was forced to cancel due to concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.The training is designed specifically for tribal gaming regulators and is provided by tribal gaming regulators, offering useful information in addition to real-world experience. Jamie Hummingbird, NTGCR Chairman, commented, “The NTGCR Board of Directors recognized the need to adapt to the changes brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic and decided to seize the opportunity to offer our prestigious Regulators Certification Academy using virtual meeting platform technology. In doing so, the NTGCR can continue fulfilling its mission to provide quality training to tribal gaming regulators.”Travis Foley, Chief Operations Officer, stated, “As an NTGCR Associate Member, we are proud to offer our support and resources to continue the advancement of tribal gaming and education. We are honored to be hosting the three-day event in August and look forward to assisting the NTGCR team in providing the highest level of virtual training and education to their membership.”Registration for the Academy began in July and is offered at a reduced rate. According to Chairman Hummingbird, “The Board realized that many tribal gaming operations had been negatively impacted financially by the pandemic and, as a result, tribal budgets have also been impacted with tribal gaming regulatory authorities’ travel and training budgets being reduced. By offering the training in an online forum versus a live setting, the cost of conducting the Academy is reduced. We respect the financial position our colleagues are in and wanted to pass those savings along to our participants.Travis Foley continued, “While we cannot predict what lies ahead with the pandemic, we can do our part in keeping regulators connected and engaged.

Don’t Let the COVID-19 Crisis Turn into a Cyber Crisis

Don’t Let the COVID-19 Crisis Turn into a Cyber Crisis

BMM Testlabs is pleased to announce the launch of its cybersecurity initiative to provide effective cyber defense solutions uniquely suited to the current environment of dramatically escalated cyber threats and ubiquitous remote working amidst the global COVID-19 pandemic.  BMM BIG Cyber enables organizations to connect individual computers and laptops of their employees, regardless of their location, to a best-in-class Security Operations Center (SOC). The SOC provides 24/7 monitoring and response capabilities. Gene Chayevsky, President & CFO BMM Testlabs, commented, “Increasing global concerns around the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) has forced millions of employees to shift into remote working to accommodate government social distancing directives. Amidst this global phenomenon and public interest in COVID-related news, we are witnessing an extreme surge in cybercrime activity, with the FBI recently reporting up to a 300% increase in the number of daily reported incidents. Security breaches, such as loss of personal and financial data, can cause immense reputational and financial harm, and commonly used cyber security solutions are typically not sufficient to fully address these growing threats. No amount of locks on the door and windows will keep you safe from attack – only a dedicated, professional monitoring and response team provides adequate levels of cyber resilience.” Alexandru Petrescu, SVP, BMM BIG Cyber, added, “The types of cyber threats are continually evolving along with increasing digitization and new technology developments. Gaps within security infrastructures can become exposed, as companies realize their current tools and solutions are inadequate for handling such a substantial and rapid increase in their remote workforce. We are urging organizations of all sizes and across all industries to enhance their awareness of cyber threats as cybercriminals ramp up their efforts to exploit the fear and uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 environment. As most cyberattacks are random, everyone is a target.” BMM BIG Cyber’s highly specialized, military-level professionals can detect and remediate suspicious activity, manage overwhelming security logs and reduce the workload on customers’ understaffed IT teams. With 24/7 real-time monitoring and threat detection, our team of experts can substantially enhance the health of your security infrastructure through unique methodologies, technology integration and smart automation.
