Today’s global security and strategic

non-military threat, and hybrid threat which
can be categorized as factual and non-factual.
These threats include terrorism, radicalism,
separatism and armed rebellions, natural
disasters, border violations, sea piracy and
natural resources theft, epidemics, cyber
attacks and espionage, trafficking and drug
abuse as well conventional war or armed
conflicts. In country conditions cannot be
