This article considers the sequence of faculty professional competence development and the stages of this process in the higher education institutions of Ukraine’s security and defence sector as modern. Also, practical tools for managing this process in the context of its implementation in practice are identified.</p> 2024-05-22T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Kostyantyn Mamchur Formal and legal requirements for public administration bodies for the prevention of a major industrial accident 2024-05-22T20:24:58+03:00 Bogdan Kołcz <p>The article presents issues concerning selected elements in the field of counteracting major industrial accidents, concerning formal and legal requirements for public administration bodies, their location in legal norms in the aspect of tasks performed in relation to the needs of the society. In this context, a review was made of legal acts related to the functioning of the major-accident prevention system, concerning the requirements for the bodies of the State Fire Service and the Environmental Protection Inspection.</p> <p>Moreover, the provisions contained in legal regulations were analysed and their significance in the area of development and implementation of documentation by the State Fire Service authorities, concerning mitigation, combating and removal of effects of a major industrial accident, was explained.</p> <p>The subject is based on the provisions of the European Union law and environmental law regulations and executive acts indicating the requirements which are directed in the context of public administration bodies for counteracting major industrial accidents. The objective of the accident prevention system is to limit, liquidate and remove the effects of a major accident, therefore the public administration bodies should ensure effective and efficient actions to save lives, property and the environment. The article indicates, in theoretical research, that in order for such actions to take place, it becomes necessary to introduce appropriate changes in national executive acts, concerning the determination of the way of combating the hazard by taking action in case of an industrial accident, as indicated in the European Union directive.</p> 2024-05-22T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Bogdan Kołcz Criminal ıntelligence model and concepts: anthropological elements, sociological dimensions 2024-05-22T21:15:29+03:00 İbrahim Yavuz M. Kubilay Akman <p>Crime has a serious impact in all societies. Government and authorities are trying to find solutions to this big and serious problem. Criminal incidents are topics of researches in security, criminology, sociology and social anthropology. Criminal Intelligence (CRIMINT) is a sub-discipline of intelligence and specialized on analyzing crime in its social, cultural and international contexts. In this article criminal intelligence is discussed in an interdisciplinary way with references to other related scientific fields. Main concepts of CRIMINT are analyzed, Intelligence-led policing (ILP) is focused and also anthropological aspects of crime are explained in order to open new horizons in intelligence studies. Human rights, as a very important value, also have been among the crucial lines of our scientific study here.</p> 2024-05-22T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2024 İbrahim Yavuz, M. Kubilay Akman Opportunities and threats of the use of artificial intelligence during information operations 2024-05-26T17:46:53+03:00 Oleksandr Leonov Davyd Smoliak <p>The trends in the development of artificial intelligence in Ukraine and the world are analyzed, focusing on the use of artificial intelligence capabilities as an asymmetric response to challenges and threats arising during hybrid confrontation.</p> 2024-03-31T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Oleksandr Leonov, Davyd Smoliak Technologies for strategic communications modeling 2024-05-26T18:49:52+03:00 Yevhenii Harkavyi Maksym Shvets <p>The research analyzes the realization problem and fundamentals of the strategic communications functioning system in terms of a modern information society. The research systematizes the experience of the North Atlantic Alliance in the field of introduction of advanced technologies of strategic communications from the military and security perspective. The research reveals the essence and specific nature of strategic communications modeling as the newest tool of strategic management. The research proves the interrelation of the globalization and technologicalization processes with the transformation of information and communication technologies. The emphasis is put on the multidimensionality of understanding of the research issues, which is due to the complexity of formalization of the strategic communications tool.</p> <p>Three technologies of strategic communications modeling are offered: “Conceptual”, “Design” and “Crisis”. A comparative review of these technologies is carried out in accordance with the essential indicators existing in NATO standards (STANAG). The emphasis is made on the key components on which effective strategic communications modeling depends.</p> <p>The approximate algorithm for modeling strategic communications is defined, with the help of which it is possible not only to minimize the consequences of information manipulation and abuse but also, remaining within democratic practices, influence information, and communication reality, presenting it in a positive light, form (change) public opinion, information retrievals and trends, etc.</p> 2024-03-31T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Yevhenii Harkavyi, Maksym Shvets
