As repositories of the personal information and financial records of 
hundreds of thousands of guests enrolled in loyalty programs, Las Vegas 
resorts are an obvious target for terrorists seeking to finance their 
destructive plots, a security expert told a tourism safety conference 

David Shepherd, CEO and chief preparedness officer of Las Vegas-based 
Readiness Resource Group, urged more than 200 security officers 
attending the International Tourism Safety Conference at the Golden 
Nugget to develop plans for financial terrorism and cyberterrorism if 
they haven’t already.

Shepherd outlined how terrorists finance their plots in a presentation 
at the locally produced event that examined how to protect companies 
from thieves and terrorists and to prepare for natural disasters.

The three-day conference concluded Wednesday at the Golden Nugget and 
was sponsored by the Southern Nevada Tourist Safety Association, the Las 
Vegas Security Chiefs Association, the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors 
Authority and Metropolitan Police.
