Dave Wasson receives the COPE insurance certification

Hays Companies is pleased to announce that Dave Wasson has received the Chubb Cyber ​​COPE Insurance CertificationSM (CCIC) Honored by the College of Information Systems and Public Policy, Chubb and Carnegie Mellon University (CMU).

Wasson is one of a select group of people who have completed a seven-month certification program that covers industry best practices in risk management, governance and cybersecurity operations. The CCIC is the first organization of its kind to be established in 2018 as a partnership between Chubb and CMU's Heinz College, focusing on issues such as cybersecurity foundations, risk and resilience management, effective incident response, cyber laws and rules as well as individual insurance solutions.

"We have developed this unique program to give attendees the opportunity to deepen their understanding of the evolving cyber risk landscape and provide practical cyber security solutions," said Bobbie Goldie, senior vice president of North America Financial Lines at Chubb. "Agents and brokers who completed the program have demonstrated a deep understanding of the cyber security landscape so they can help their clients manage their cyber risks."

Courses were offered by Chubb experts and faculty members at CMU's Heinz College, which are made up of industry leaders and cybersecurity practitioners. This year's candidate pool was limited to 40 graduates. The certification required face-to-face sessions at the CMU campus in Pittsburgh and Washington, DC, and required a Capstone project managed by the country's most highly-ranked information technology program.

"We are delighted that Dave has completed the Cyber ​​COPE Insurance Certificate program," said Ryan Anderson, senior vice president of Hays Companies. "It exemplifies our commitment to continuous learning to deliver industry-leading cyber solutions to our customers."

To maintain the label, participants must participate in two virtual sessions each year.
