Cyber Clinics

Cyber Clinics follow a “triage, treat, and train” methodology where trained “Cyber-Medics” provide personalized cyber-security guidance. The main objective of a Cyber Clinic is to teach people valuable techniques in cyber self-defense. Cyber Clinics provide a mutually beneficial value proposition; the “patients” learn how to improve their cyber self-defense, and student cyber-medics apply their cybersecurity knowledge and develop practical experience.

Cyber Clinics have been on hold since 2018 but we are looking to start holding clinics again if there is sufficient interest. Past clinics have been held in the following locations:
  • Attorney General's Office
  • Governor's Mansion
  • UNR Knowledge Center
  • Reno Air Races
