BCG at the Munich Security Conference

What must leaders do to tackle their most pressing transnational security and international defense challenges? How can governments drive innovation through international partnerships? At the Munich Security Conference (MSC), experts explore the global defense initiatives 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, international partnerships, and defense policy to benefit societies around the globe. Cross-border cooperation on matters of defense and security is vital for enabling leaders to advance global defense initiatives.

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.
