The Munich Security Conference has been a major arena for policymakers, academics, and transatlantic leaders confronting the most serious security concerns of the day since its beginning in 1963.

Due to the Covid-19 epidemic, there was no regular Munich Security Conference in 2021. Nonetheless, the MSC held the MSC Special Edition 2021 in February, as is customary for the conference, and was once again at the focus of world diplomacy.

Several smaller and high-level activities will take place throughout the year to lay the ground for the 58th Munich Security Conference, which will be held in February 2022 under the theme “Road to Munich.”

The 58th Munich Security Conference (MSC) will begin tomorrow between February 18 to 20, 2022, at the Hotel Bayerischer Hof in Munich, as is customary. To guarantee the health and safety of its participants and the Munich public, the MSC 2022 will stick to its established traditions but will invite fewer visitors, media representatives, and smaller delegations.

Google has long stated its aim to organize the world’s knowledge and make it universally accessible and useful. The company creates solutions that help people become more educated, connected, productive, and secure.

Speaking ahead of the 58th Munich Security Conference the President, Global Affairs & Chief Legal Officer, Google & Alphabet, Kent Walker, in a public policy statement released today, reiterated the aims of the corporation in fighting misinformation online and safeguarding elections, advancing cybersecurity, and moving towards collective standards.

Citing specialized teams from Google and YouTube in fighting misinformation online and safeguarding elections, Mr. Walker affirmed the intelligence and security experts who work around the clock and around the world to thwart these threats and protect the people using our products and the YouTube content, which helps in removing violative content and reducing the spread of borderline content.

Google has been known for its well-equipped campaigns with best-in-class security features and protects their operations from attack during election cycles which help voters find high-quality, authoritative election information directly. Likewise, her sophisticated cybersecurity systems that help stop attacks every single day rebuilt the entire security infrastructure with the new inventing technologies.

In his wordings: “In Munich, I will be urging policymakers to work together on establishing collective security standards including those that move democratic governments toward secure cloud services and zero-trust architecture.”

“In the last fifty years, democratic governments helped advance some of the world’s most important innovations — including the Internet, microchips, computers, global positioning systems, and revolutionary vaccines against COVID. In the next fifty, I’m optimistic about the ability of science and advanced technology to help solve some of the world’s biggest challenges, like climate change, health care, and global development.” Kent Walker maintained.

He, however, added that to achieve all these, partnership with governments and civil societies to rebuild trust is essential to realize tomorrow’s promise in protecting the public square.
