The Travelers Institute, the public policy division of The Travelers Companies, announced its fall cybersecurity education tour, part of its Cyber: Prepare, Prevent, Mitigate, Restore series. Educational programs will be hosted in six cities across the United States, offering best practices for effectively preparing for and managing cyber incidents. 

“We are looking forward to hitting the road this fall to help communities navigate an ever-evolving cybersecurity landscape,” said Joan Woodward, President of the Travelers Institute and Executive Vice President of Public Policy at Travelers. “Education is core to cyber resilience, and we are thrilled to convene thought leaders from coast to coast with insurance agents and brokers and other business leaders to share resources and, importantly, learn from one another.”

Each program will feature a keynote address, a panel discussion and an opportunity to engage with experts from Travelers, the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), Mullen Coughlin and others.

The first program is scheduled for Sept. 12 in Atlanta at the Georgia Tech Research Institute Conference Center. It will begin with a keynote address from Jay Gamble, Regional Director, Region 4, CISA. The session will also include perspectives from Carolyn Purwin Ryan, Partner, Mullen Coughlin; Terri Denison, District Director, Georgia District Office, SBA; Ryan Hebert, Business Information Security Officer, New York Stock Exchange; and John Menefee, CyberRisk Product Manager, Travelers.

“Every business leader and employee has a responsibility to protect and advance the resilience of their company’s cyber infrastructure,” said David Rosado, Regional Director, Region 9, CISA, who will provide the keynote address and participate in the panel discussion at the Sept. 19 event. “We are proud to partner with the Travelers Institute and help individuals across the country become cyber secure.”
