The study aims to describe indicatively the prediction of the impacts of the current demanding situation related to COVID-19 on the functioning of security systems and mechanisms of some countries – including the inspiration for the Czech Republic. The topic is the content of certain impacted studies as well as of strategic documents (in the field of population protection). Secondary outputs are already emerging, seeking to suggest the best practices by which the security community can respond to the changed and still difficult to predict situation (including the response to acute manifestations of extremism, terrorism or CBRN substances abuse).
