Abstract

Modern security threats are constantly evolving, both in terms of forms of execution, as well as with regard to categories of potential perpetrators and end targets of attacks. Adequacy of response therefore depends largely on a continuous and timely analysis of the mentioned evolution and all potential risks, on which basis an adequate security response is formed. Given that the concept of security is an indivisible synergistic category of all the factors that form an adequate security response, the private security sector must monitor this evolutionary cycle of potential threats to provide adequate responses through protective measures and activities at the micro-location level. It is therefore essential to analyse monitoring of trends and evolution of potential security threats in the private security segment, the availability of this information in the sector, structuring models and optimization of security activities and, ultimately, the available resources of the private security sector in Croatia when forming an adequate and effective response to potential security threats.
