On Friday, February 15, the EastWest Institute (EWI) is co-hosting a cybersecurity roundtable at the Munich Security Conference (MSC) titled “A Dragon in Disguise? Geostrategy in Cyberspace.” 

The discussion will bring together around 45 experts from the technical, government and security communities. Bruce McConnell, Global Vice President and head of EWI’s Global Cooperation in Cyberspace program, will moderate, and Katrin Suder, Member of the Board of Trustees at the Hertie School of Governance and former State Secretary of Defense of the Federal Republic of Germany, will deliver introductory remarks.

Participants will examine the geopolitical aspects of cybersecurity, focusing on the increasingly crucial role economic actors play in bridging the divide between economic interests and policy. This year’s roundtable will feature perspectives from several prominent actors in the economic, political and cyber sectors, including South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha and former Australian Prime Minister Malcom Turnbull.
