He also worked professionally as an intelligence analyst for New York State’s homeland security office and worked extensively in the world of critical infrastructure protection.

During his time at UNLV University Libraries, Nussbaum will be studying how innovations in the gaming industry to protect physical and cyber security of gaming facilities could be applied to other industries, like water utilities, schools, or transportation hubs.
