Chris Beck

Executive Risk Consultant, Milliman

Chris leads Milliman’s Complex Risk Solutions (CRS) practice group.  The practice offers clients innovative solutions for quantifying complex risks, including cyber, vendor, conduct and operational risk. CRS uses causal modeling approach that solves for the shortcomings of frequency severity modeling and the limitations of historical loss data. The solution can also be applied to cyber underwriting, accumulation risk and non-affirmative (i.e., silent cyber) risk. Lastly, CRS integrates artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) to construct sentiment analysis, distinguishing “signal” from noise in order to provide clients with an emerging threat framework.
