SECURITY NEW PARADIGMS

Security New Paradigms

WHY WE HAVE TO FIND SECURITY NEW PARADIGMS?

The conflictual events and the confrontations that our planet faces are more and more frequent and complex. Quickly and constantly they are assuming aspects that make them not localized in specific, defined spaces, or limited to a predictable span of time.

We are witnessing the sharpening of the competition for the control of an environment which is not only represented by the physical space, or by key infrastructural area, but also by those among the most important economic flows (financial, energy and resources, communication and information) both material and virtual, involving and influencing the consciousness and the tendencies of the population. It is important, so, to have access to instruments that can support public policies, enhancing proactive, shared initiatives and, more than that, capable to shape new patterns among the different social components, the active groups on the territory and the different forces on the field, included the Government and the local Administrations; these have, naturally, a great interest in keeping in their own hands the decision capability and the possibility to drive the territorial management.

HOW WE APPROACH THE SECURITY PARADIGM?

We introduce a methodology to organize the territorial management strategy, considering every component and – primarily – the interaction among the different forces on the field. This allows to operate at the best to prevent critical events and emergencies, limiting the use of coercive instruments to the strict necessary to restore the stability and maintaining the social balance. At a lower cost, both social and economical, reduced and acceptable for the community. These, together with a number of other consequential elements are the main points to start with in an analysis applying the X_Sphere© multidimensional matrix in order to strategically plan security in the most effective and balanced way. To improve the effectiveness of the X_Sphere© instrument, other tools are previewed to be used jointly, in particular regarding Leadership and Motivation, and “Operational Media Communication”, plus “Generative Communication”.

WHY THE OLD SECURITY PARADIGMS DOESN'T WORK ANYMORE?

The gradual state shrinking, consequence of the international, and supranational relationships, and of the delegated functions to subordinated authorities, happening in an explicit or implicit way, and the show up into this process of groups of interest (legitimate, legitimated, or illegitimate ones) that can express any sort of power on the territory, induces crises dynamics, even in areas until now considered “secure” , in Europe and in general in the Western World. In particular, as an example, the Mediterranean Area is an hotspot and a geopolitical theater were most of the flows are happening and are determining important changes, including the configuration of new paradigms for the future. We are witnessing the sharpening of the competition for the control of an environment which is not only represented by the physical space, or by key infrastructural area, but also by those among the most important economic flows (financial, energy and resources, communication and information) both material and virtual, involving the consciousness and the tendencies of the population. In a strategic portion of our planet.

HOW DO YOU APPLY THE X_Sphere© MULTIDIMENTIONAL MATRIX TO SECURITY?

We have identified three main levels of interaction (national and supranational, regional and macro-area, local and diffused) and from our analysis the result is that the intermediate level is where the most effective and conflictual processes occur, within situations and events of high risk, generated by illegitimate/criminal/terrorist groups. Furthermore, this is the level that directly determines policies and actions for the other two. This is also the level in which the public urban policies, aimed to govern the European development, are expressed, in a metropolitan expansion time and a new social conception era. It is important, so, to have access to instruments that can support public policies, regarding both control and coercive actions, one side, and proactive, shared initiatives and, more than that, capable to shape new patterns among the different social components, the active groups on the territory and the different forces on the field, included the Government and the local Administrations. These have, naturally, a great interest in keeping in their own hands the decision capability and the possibility to drive the territorial management. Because it is more and more necessary to consider the joints and the connections among the flowing processes, in particular in a metropolitan, urban environment, as promoter of well established balances, accepted and managed, capable to modify the circumstances generating antagonisms, reclaiming the healthy territorial competition, we introduce a methodology to organize the territorial management strategy, considering every component and – primarily – the interaction among the different forces on the field. This way we operate at the best to prevent critical events and emergencies, limiting the use of coercive instruments to the strict necessary to restore the stability and maintain the social equilibrium.

HOW IS THE SECURITY NEW PARADIGMS PROGRAM ORGANIZED?

To respond to the needs training about security paradigms, Xerdan has designed a program of seminars, tailored on its clients’ needs.

To improve the effectiveness of the X_Sphere© instrument, other trainings are also previewed, in particular regarding Leadership and Motivation, together with “Operational Media Communication” and “Generative Communication”. In fact, Xerdan believes that it is fundamental that ,once a strategy has been outlined and planned, a number of adequate Leaders is capable to implement it correctly, both at staff level, and on the field. Leaders that must be themselves motivated and able to motivate their teams.

HOW YOU INCLUDE "COMMUNICATION" INTO THE PROGRAM?

Communication is considered in its many aspects, both as inner communication – with the Self, internal communication – in the organization and external communication - with the media. Al these must be carefully considered nowadays, as a fundamental asset and as a weapon system at the same time.

HOW ARE THE TRAINING TAILORED?

All the training will be tailored and structured specifically, utilizing specific briefings and inputs studied together with your staff, to make the transfer of information as much effective as possible to the professionals to which the seminars are aimed to.

WHAT ABOUT SECURITY NEW PARADIGMS TRAINING?

The training aims to approach the proposed themes, giving the attendees a general information and the essential instruments to develop policies, projects and planning in the field of security, in an innovative way “per se”, widely applicable to the Strategic Design processes and in an frame of “Comprehensive Sustainability” of the processes and the related issues. The seminars aim mainly to approach HOW to evolve the organizational and personal skills, giving the attendees essential instruments to develop knowledge, attitudes, policies, projects and planning in their activities, widely applicable to the specific processes of Security. The method in itself has been applied to, and included into the seminar structure: the seminar, in fact, is based on the X_Sphere© concept that produces an interconnected system, treated through different methodological instruments integrated into it. This way it is possible to deal with the project and planning starting from different initial points, but always including all the components and variants into the process, to the final adopted scheme, following different paths but generating an useful pattern.

WHAT ARE THE MAIN TOPICS OF THE TRAINING?

The areas of interest treated into the training are:

  • Strategic Design - Process and Systemic Design and Planning;
  • Quadruple Bottom Line;
  • Analysis of the present and potential situation of security in the area – An overview;
  • Crisis and emergencies concepts – Economy and War; Migration Flows;
  • Sustainability and Environment/Ambiance;
  • Social Synergies – Intercultural Relationships;
  • Operative Media Communication – preventive, during the event, after – Different languages and ways to communicate;
  • Leadership enhancement-management & Motivation;
  • Human Resources Interaction;
  • Generative Communication.

The topics will include planning and management of the strategies inherent the policies for the territorial security and the services related, with an overall vision that can take to the capacity to afford complex situations, including economic, environmental, social, educational needs harmonized in any decisional process – related to security. It will be fundamental the analysis of crisis and emergencies, mostly with the intent of prevention, where the capacity to reach a balanced solution is required, within complex situations, considering the effects at short, medium and long term, and the impacts on the different scales, both in time and space. The proposed methodology is based on “Circle Design” and “X_Sphere© Design”, integrating different approaches to economic, social, environmental and educational issues. It is possible, so, to deal with the project and planning starting from different initial points, but always including all the components and variants into the process to the final adopted scheme, following different paths but generating an useful pattern.

HOW ARE THE SEMINARS ORGANIZED?

The seminars are articulated on a period of two weeks – 80 hours. They can be organized according with your own exigencies, distributing the lectures differently, on a spread span of time (e.g. two days every month/two weeks). The team working with XERDAN Ltd for the seminars is chosen among highly qualified professionals. A preliminary conference will be held in order to introduce the training.
