The first program is scheduled for Sept. 12 in Atlanta at the Georgia Tech Research Institute Conference Center.

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.”
