The traditional Bavarian restaurant Donisl was the venue for the latest edition of the MBS Dine & Discuss event, held once per semester. Yesterday’s event focused on “The Future of Security” and featured two distinguished speakers who provided expert insights into the highly topical subject. The attendance comprised about 40 guests, amongst them MBA students and alumni, MBS faculty members as well as the guest lecturers of the Master International Week currently taking place at MBS.
MBS Professor Dr. Marc-Michael Bergfeld, the host of the Dine & Discuss event series, opened the evening with a welcome speech and subsequently handed over to the first expert speaker, Alexander Zippel. He had come the long way from Bonn where he acts as a manager of the Security Governance department of Deutsche Post DHL Group, the world’s leading logistics and mail communications company.
In his presentation, Alexander Zippel outlined “Corporate Security Challenges and Future Trends” such as cyber crime, terrorism, fraud, political issues, and especially, the “tech revolution” involving trends such as the industry 4.0 and increased connectivity, amongst others.
Following was Oliver Lehmeyer, founder and CEO of Cyber Risk Agency. The company is specialized in supporting German SMEs in cyber security issues. In his presentation, he illustrated measures for companies to “Managing Cyber Risks”.
The very insightful lectures were followed by extensive Q&A sessions and accompanied by a delicious 3-course meal. In addition, the guests seized the opportunity to engage in lively discussions before Prof. Dr. Bergfeld concluded the evening around midnight.
