    Introduction The organization of international relations is currently being transformed. After the end of the bipolar world, the United States remained the main pole. The US hegemonic position is now weakening and new regional powers are emerging. The BRIC countries are most often mentioned in this context. So far, thanks to its economic potential, China is gaining ground. Over time, however, the pace of economic and population growth will slow, and India, which has not only economic but also innovation potential, could gradually take over. Russia has to cope with a population decline and domestic political reforms, but its large resource base gives it a chance to become a Eurasian power, and thus a kind of bridge between Europe and Asia.

    1. Security and its dimensions Security is one of the most important values of any company. If safety is not ensured, further activities cannot take place. Although we all have roughly the same idea of what the word security means, its content may not always be identical. This difficult concept can be defined from several points of view.

    2. Military security From the security strategies of Russia, the USA, the EU and other sources, it is possible to read what is considered a security threat in the future. These are, in particular, terrorism, the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, environmental degradation, cybercrime and the existence of so-called failed states. All of the above are directly related to the military dimension, except for the degradation of the environment. It is primarily associated with non-military risks.

    3. Energy security Energy security is a typical case of an extended security concept. Access to energy has always been a major issue and has been the subject of controversy. However, more emphasis has been placed on energy security since the oil shocks of the 1970s. Oil shocks have shaken international relations. Until now, the position of the state has depended mainly on military factors. In a situation where countries had to deal with a shortage of energy resources, countries such as Saudi Arabia or Kuwait, which were militarily insignificant but had scarce raw materials, gained in importance.

    The basic thesis of this work was that the security environment is changing. In addition to the overall development of the international system towards multipolarity, it is also affected by other partial changes. The international system is more complex and no dimension of security can be underestimated. Nor can new actors be underestimated, as they have great potential, both in terms of population, thinking and abilities of actors. The range of threats and their potential carriers is growing and the difference between internal and external security is blurred. In a globalized world, the shape of the security environment will also depend more on economic factors.
