Security awareness and challenges in Myanmar

Human security has become a critical content of the global political and development agenda. Two ideas lie in its heart ; The first is that the protection of individuals is a strategic concern for the nation as well as international security. Secondly, security conditions for people‘s developments are not bound by traditional matters of national defense, law and order, but rather encompass political, economic and social issues enabling a life free from risk and fear.

The workshop will focus on the importance and effectiveness of security by using professional security technologies.
