Cyber: Prepare, Prevent, Mitigate, Restore®

Recognizing that education is a critical component to enhancing cybersecurity, the Travelers Institute has been promoting cyber awareness through an international campaign titled Cyber: Prepare, Prevent, Mitigate, Restore®. The campaign, which has featured more than 25 educational programs across the United States and Canada, convenes leaders from the public and private sectors to share insights on preparing for and responding to evolving cyber threats. Travelers provides our internal risk management expertise and a platform for government officials to share regulatory requirements for data protection and highlight free resources. Speakers from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Department of Justice, Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Federal Trade Commission and the Economic Club of Canada have participated. These events also provide an important value-add to key constituencies, such as agents and brokers, who partner with us to bring programs to their communities; Travelers customers; public sector organizations and municipalities; and the general public. 

The Travelers Institute also released a comprehensive, educational Cyber Guide for small to midsized businesses to help them understand and assess cyber threats and vulnerabilities. The guide is available for U.S. audiences in English and Spanish. A Canadian Cyber Guide is also available in both French and English, with specific information tailored to Canadian businesses regarding their regulatory requirements.

Joan Woodward, President of the Travelers Institute, elaborates on why the Institute launched Cyber: Prepare, Prevent, Mitigate, Restore in this video. Additional resources are also available here.
