BCG at the Munich Security Conference

How can government and industry leaders tackle the most pressing international defense challenges of the 21st century? Experts at the Munich Security Conference (MSC) explore this and other tough questions.

To make the world a safer place, leaders from government and industry must understand potent forces at work, and they must define and advance common security goals that will benefit societies around the globe.
