The Travelers Institute, the public policy division of The Travelers Companies, Inc. (NYSE: TRV), announced on February 5, 2018 its series of 2018 educational forums focusing on reducing distracted driving, preparing for and managing cyber risks, and examining small business challenges and opportunities.
The events are free and open to the public.
“Our 2018 educational series will focus on issues that resonate with families, entrepreneurs and business leaders,” said Joan Woodward, President of the Travelers Institute and Executive Vice President of Public Policy at Travelers. “In collaboration with leading organizations and universities as well as top public and private sector leaders, we look forward to elevating the dialogue on these important topics and pervasive societal issues.”
The specific educational forums are:
· Every Second Matters℠, which brings attention to the distracted-driving crisis that is contributing to the rise in traffic fatalities in the United States. The events will feature innovative tools, such as TrueMotion’s Mojo app, to help prevent distractions and encourage drivers, passengers and pedestrians to speak up when they see drivers losing focus.
· Cyber: Prepare, Prevent, Mitigate, Restore℠, a series that provides guidance for small and midsized organizations to help them prepare for and respond to data breaches and other cyber incidents.
· Small Business – Big Opportunity®, which examines challenges facing small and midsized organizations, such as access to capital, business continuity planning and cyber risks, and shares information to help businesses overcome obstacles that can significantly impact operations.
The Travelers Institute will also host its annual Kicking Off Hurricane Preparedness Season symposium at the start of the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season.
