Regarded for his work in the automotive security arena, Chris is a Principal Autonomous Vehicle Security Architect at Cruise Automation and also served as a security lead at Uber’s Advanced Technology Center and chairman of SummerCon, America’s longest running hacker conference.

Best known for engineering the remote compromise of a 2014 Jeep Cherokee with his research partner, Dr. Charlie Miller, he has been praised for exposing serious security flaws in automobiles.

Highly sought for his sobering insights on security problems in various technologies and devices that can lead to compromises from the outside world, Chris shares urgent solutions for protecting the public from imminent cyber-threats. His thoughts on the world of cybersecurity in general will change your entire view of potential vulnerabilities faced by not only the auto industry, but our increasingly digital, wireless and Internet of Things way of life and business.
