CEO Ryan Spalding Awarded Cyber Cope Insurance Certification Designation 


Worthy Insurance is pleased to announce that Ryan Spalding, CEO, has earned the Cyber COPE Insurance CertificationSM (CCIC) Designation. The CCIC designation is awarded by Chubb and Carnegie Mellon University’s Heinz College of Information Systems and Public Policy to only a select group of insurance professionals.

In 2018, Chubb and Carnegie Mellon University jointly created the CCIC program, designed to provide commercial agents, brokers, and wholesalers with the opportunity to learn and earn certification in the most effective practices for cyber security risk management, governance, and operations, thus enabling them to serve as high-performing cyber risk advisors.

The CCIC program is an eight-month hybrid program, comprising both onsite and virtual sessions, and a capstone project. Participants are exposed to a wide range of topics, including cyber security fundamentals, cyber risk and resilience management, effective incident response, cyber law and regulation, developing custom insurance solutions, and other critical areas. The curriculum is delivered by a team of Chubb insurance experts and Carnegie Mellon faculty.

“With the ever-increasing threat of cybercrime and the challenges this brings our clients, Worthy Insurance identified a need to provide our customers with a higher level of advice and expertise regarding this critical topic.,”  said Ryan Spalding about why he went through the course.

To maintain their certification, CCIC graduates are required to attend two virtual sessions annually to keep abreast of changing cyber security conditions. They also continue to benefit from access to a network of instructors, law enforcement officials, cyber security professionals, and chief information security officers from a variety of private, public, and government organizations.
