In an age where security dynamics are constantly changing, it is increasingly important for us to explore the complex interplay of various factors that shape the security picture. And as we navigate an ever-changing world, we are all acutely aware of the increasingly important role of security.

The Scientific Conference “Current Security Issues” aims to bring together leading scientists, experts, researchers and professionals to discuss and exchange ideas on various aspects of security related to: progress, challenges and future trends in system design, implementation and management for security; the effective use and allocation of security resources; the societal impact and legal dimensions of security and defense measures; non-military crises and cutting-edge security technologies.

By fostering an interdisciplinary dialogue that explores innovative approaches to addressing the multifaceted aspects of security, we believe that your expertise and valuable input will greatly enrich the discussions, having a significant impact on the future of security.

We are confident that your active participation will foster valuable connections within the security community.
