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.
