Travelers Offers Customers Cybersecurity Services from Symantec™

The Travelers Companies, Inc. (NYSE:TRV) today announced that it is making pre-breach cybersecurity services from Symantec (News - Alert) Corp. available to eligible Travelers cyber policyholders. Symantec, recognized as a global leader in cybersecurity solutions, will provide a cyber resilience readiness assessment, cybersecurity awareness training videos and a security coach helpline, among other services.

"Collaborating with Symantec will provide our customers with the knowledge, planning and solutions that can help them better understand the latest threats and the best ways to protect against them," said Tim Francis, Enterprise Cyber Lead, Travelers. "Cyber risks are a top concern for businesses of all sizes, and by working with Symantec's team, we can help alleviate those concerns by making new risk management services available that go beyond the insurance policy."

Travelers cyber customers can have access to many of Symantec's Cyber Security Services, including a one-hour consultation following the cyber resilience readiness assessment to help identify areas of weakness, cybersecurity awareness training videos for educating their organization and a Symantec security coach helpline that can address questions about emerging cyber risks and security gaps. Policyholders also can take advantage of discounts on several Symantec products, such as Norton™ Small Business software. Service availability will vary depending on the Travelers cyber policy purchased.

"As technology continues to evolve and adversaries become more sophisticated, it's important for businesses to understand the broad scope of potential trouble spots in their IT infrastructure and how they can mitigate or reduce these risks," said Pascal Millaire, Vice President, Cyber Insurance, Symantec. "We're looking forward to bringing our cyber expertise to Travelers' cyber customers."

Travelers has provided cyber-related insurance coverage with robust risk management services for more than 30 years and understands the importance of helping organizations work through an incident, from recovering after a breach to managing expenses associated with an attack.
