Chairman of Atlantik-Brücke and former Vice-Chancellor of Germany Sigmar Gabriel kicked off the Atlantik-Brücke evening event at Munich Security Conference (MSC) with insightful remarks before Atlantik-Brücke CEO Julia Friedlander moderated the discussion of Assistant Attorney General for National Security Matt Olson and Silverado Policy Accelerator Chairman Dmitri Alperovitch who provided their views on the role of the U.S. in the current and future global security landscape in light of the upcoming elections in 2024 in the U.S. and internationally.

Earlier in the day, I had the opportunity to listen to and discuss cybersecurity risks and mitigation strategies, especially in the context of leveraging AI for productivity gains with experts from Nvidia, Microsoft, Amazon, and Palo Alto Networks during the panel on “Crafting Cybersecurity Resilience Amidst the AI Surge”.

Rounding off the day, I enjoyed attending the Female Networking Initiative on “Disrupted Enlightenment: AI's Challenge to Democracy and Women's Empowerment” and the insightful discussions with Eveline Metzen, Anahita Thoms among many others during the many different MSC events specifically on energy security and energy transition.
