The values that are present in a society are a part of its culture as a reflection of the relations that exist amongst the elements in the community. They are not created overnight, but they are built upon certain traditions and etiological factors of influence. Most frequently, the security, and the security culture embrace proactive measures, but this does not exclude the possibility of repression. It would be used in situations when the individual and collective values are jeopardized, but also when there is a certain risk for the interests of society i.e. the state.
We can define security as a necessary and basic initiator of the processes in society that provides the individual and the community to create and attribute for a better social and economic condition. When there is a risk for the sources of existence, the home or the environment where the human exists, we can say that his security is endangered a great deal.
All that man created is a part of his acting in the society. Security is an element of balance that sustains human existence. Security has emerged at the same time with the creation of culture, during the forming of the human community when the man started building the first tools that were used for hunting, but also for his personal protection. The security culture was expressed in times of danger, risk, or fear.
Security became a part of the culture of man’s life as an adjustment of the condition he lives in.
