5th Annual Cyber Risk Conference at DePaul University

27 Nov 2018 - 8:45 am - 5 pm

DePaul University Room 8005, DePaul Center, 1 E Jackson Blvd Chicago

We are all exposed to cyber risk, both as individuals and as actuaries.  We need to be able to use sensitive data and accurately price and value the risks that our employers and clients take on or are exposed to.  The Chicago Actuarial Association is once again partnering with DePaul University to present the 5th Annual Cyber Risk Conference on Tuesday, November 27.

Panels will address the topics of emerging threats, supply chain security, evolving insurance, and evolving privacy issues.  The conference will begin and end with keynote speakers who are experts in cyber security and will include a lunch as well as a reception, providing opportunities for networking.

The conference begins with a Keynote Address by Dr. Jacob Furst, Professor of Visual Computing and Computer Security and Director of the DePaul Information Assurance Center.

Following the keynote address is a panel on Emerging Threats.  New and evolving technologies are being deployed constantly. These evolving technologies provide a host of new benefits, but also create a horde of new risks. In this panel we’ll discuss the impact these emerging threats that accompany the evolving technologies have on all businesses.

Panelists:
Tarek Ahmad, Allstate Technology and Strategic Ventures (moderator)
Ross Durrer, Allstate Senior Manager, Cyber Security Operations Center
Danyetta Magana, President of Covenant Security Solutions
Ashley S. Woyak Baxter Healthcare Corporation Business Information and Security Officer

Next is a panel on Supply Chain Security. With growing vendor populations and exponential risk in the manufacturing industry, supply chain risk has taken on a new threat landscape. With an expert panel, we will discuss the insights learned from years of experience mitigating supply risks and what to expect in the future.

Panelists:
Anders Norremo, CEO and Founder, Third Party Trust (moderator)
Brent Pickens, Risk Manager at Bemis
James Arnold, KPMG, Principal, Cyber Services
Riley Ryan, Manager, Information Security at Sensient

Following a networking lunch is a panel on Evolving Insurance. As cyber threats have evolved, firms and organizations have turned to insurance to mitigate the potential loss. This panel will address the issues of cyber insurance and provide an overview of how it has evolved and produced many different types of coverages to meet emerging threats.

Panelists:
Scott Kannry, Axio Chief Executive Officer (moderator)
Sean Scranton, RLI Cyber Liability National Practice Leader
Joon Sung, Transunion Risk Manager

The fourth panel is on Evolving Privacy Issues. All organizations are repositories of personal information that must be secured against cyber threats. The issues of data security and privacy have spawned numerous regulations and laws, such as the General Data Protection Regulatory framework (GDPR) in the European Union that will require compliance by any firm that collects data on European citizens. This panel will deal with both the U.S. and GDPR compliance issues.

Panelists:
Tony Volini, DePaul University (moderator)
Charlotte Tscheider, DePaul University
Jan Hertzberg, DePaul University
