Abstract

This paper talks about Global security Challenges and Critical Infrastructure Protection in the Republic of Macedonia, Global Security after the Cold War: Shift in the World Order, Security Trends, Events and the Republic of Macedonia, Winds of Change: Corporate Security and Protection of the Critical Infrastructure in the Republic of Macedonia after the independence, Corporate Security’s Legislation and Critical Infrastructure Protection in the Republic of Macedonia, Organizational Design for Critical Infrastructure Protection in the Republic of Macedonia, Does Macedonia have the right strategy for critical infrastructure protection? Terrorism and organized crime have begun to pose asymmetric, network-based and unconventional threats to almost all country in the world. Security risks have become more complex and difficult to manage. They require protection and consideration of some infrastructures, social structures and actors that use to be on the margins of conventionally designed security strategies. The global security has changed. New complex threats posed by modern terrorism and organized crime has urged many states to reconsider their national security strategies. These changes require states not only to concentrate on defense against immediate dangers or criminal prosecution after the fact, but to focus on preventive security measures as well. Macedonia does not have clearly defined leading governmental institution for critical infrastructure protection. However, experiences with the steering committee in crisis management sector promise that Macedonia could easily build effective centralize planning for decentralized critical infrastructure protection.
