BCG at the Munich Security Conference

How can government and industry leaders tackle the most pressing transnational security and international defense challenges of the 21st century? At the Munich Security Conference (MSC), experts explore the defense innovations that will shape our future.

To make the world a safer place, leaders from government and industry must understand potent forces at work. They must define and advance common security goals and defense policy that will benefit societies around the globe. Cross-border cooperation on matters of defense and security is vital for enabling leaders to meet these imperatives.

BCG’s partnership with the Munich Security Conference connects one of the world’s top management consulting firms with the world's best independent forum for high-level defense policy experts and decision makers to exchange insights on transnational security and foreign policy. To support the MSC’s mission, BCG is sharing our insights and expertise, including our latest thought leadership on four pressing international defense and transnational security topics.
