Title variants

Languages of publication


As safe existence and development of the state may be at any time limited or violated, combating the factors destabilizing the national security can generally speaking be described as the defense implemented in all areas of the state functioning. As a consequence of this situation security of the State must be studied as a complex issue affecting political, military, economic, ecological and other spheres. Lack of threat is an important but not the only aspect of securing safety. An equally important factor is public awareness concerning possibilities of the state to secure it. Intuitive understanding of this term leads to the conclusion that it refers to the sphere of awareness of the entity, i.e. human, social group, nation or nations. Both the previous and present generations notice the presented regularity. In order to ensure the effectiveness of preparation in the state to confront threats all possible measures should be taken to ensure that it has been properly prepared in a given sphere. The basis of such preparations is a full identification of threats and determination of interdependencies between them. It also stems from the fact that providing security of the State – defined as a state of security, resulting from an effective protection and defense against the internal and external threats, measured as a proportion of defensive potential to the threat level – as well as stable and continuous advancement of the society have been and will be the primary goal of the authorities and public administration in all areas of their activity.
