Charlie Miller Bio: Dr. Charlie Miller reveals just how vulnerable your computer systems are, while making a passionate plea for consumers and companies to treat cybersecurity as a top priority. A former National Security Agency hacker, 4-time winner of Pwn2Own, the “Super Bowl” of computer hacking, and the first to hack both iPhone and Android phones, Dr. Miller gained national attention after he and research partner Chris Valasek hacked a 2014 Jeep Cherokee and took control of the vehicle from more than 10 miles away. A Principal Autonomous Vehicle Security Architect at Cruise Automation and former head of the autonomous vehicle security division at Didi Chuxing, a China-based ride sharing company, Dr. Miller focuses on society’s increasing connectivity and the opportunities it creates for harmful intrusions. On stage, he takes audiences on detailed, behind-the-scenes journeys to illustrate how hackers exploit vulnerabilities and why corporations and governments should address cybersecurity before assets—or lives—are put at risk. By providing practical suggestions to improve security and deter dangerous online adversaries, Dr. Miller’s candid and enlightening presentations help audiences recognize the gravity of this 21st century issue and walk away with solutions for prevention.

Session Description: In this session, presenters will discuss portfolio construction considering economic and regulatory capital constraints. Regulatory Capital is unavoidable and is usually a binding constraint for life insurance products. However, Economic Capital is a more reliable measure of risk and can be constrained at the all levels of the organization. The dilemma is how to come up with a business plan that optimizes appropriate objective measures while balancing these concerns. This session will look at several different approaches to address the risk-reward trade-off of different portfolios. It will also discuss the ways in which changes in the regulatory environment can impact a company's optimal portfolio.
