National Security


The phrase 'national security' often elicits a multitude of interpretation from different segments of the populace. Essentially though, national security is the process and mechanism designed to protect the nation and its interests from an internal/ or foreign political, military and/or economic threat.

Obviously, these threats have evolved in modern times. For the latter half of the previous century, the country's primary focus on national security was the Soviet Union and the threat of a thermonuclear holocaust. Our resources were directed almost exclusively towards strengthening our military and cultivating strategic national allies.

The present age, however, has seen the potential source of threats evolving and expanding into a wider and more complex variant. A direct invasion or nuclear strike has long been supplemented by more unique, but equally dangerous threats.


(i) Cyber terrorism
(ii) Foreign energy dependence
(iii) Currency/financial market manipulation
(iv) Non-state terrorism
