We are living in a world where change is intense and swift, knowledge seeks supremacy over ‘the mindless fist’, communication technology has tossed us into a 24-hour society that never sleeps, and the transnational boundaries on our globalised planet make us at once interdependent and wary of each other. Threat perceptions have also changed, moving on from the mere defence of territory to identifying other areas of conflict within nations that can explode into threats to national security. The idea of comprehensive security (moving beyond the strategic connotations) has begun to be widely accepted and the importance of deterring existing threats and preventing new threats is being duly recognized.
