Munich Security Conference (MSC) 2016

The MSC has become the major global forum for the discussion of security policy, gathering more than 450 heads-of-state, ministers, leading personalities of international and non-governmental organisations, as well as high ranking representatives of industry, media, academia and civil society. Klaus Schweinsberg moderated the discussion of a side event with high ranking representatives from economy and politics, including Nelson W. Cunningham, former Special Advisor to the White House and Richard Burt, Ambassador A.D. to the USA in Germany and chairman of Global Zero (photo: MSC/Mueller). Together with Professor Marco Gercke, Director of the Cybercrime Research Institute, he also presented a cybercrime simulation exclusively designed for decision makers from governments. The simulation included some of the most recent cyber attacks on states and offered a view of the current risks and opportunities for action in the field of cybercrime.
