Summary/Abstract: The term "securitology" originates from the Latin language and has been known since ancient times of Rome.2 Sciences on security derive from a Latin word "securitas" meaning security. The suffix "logos" means science and thus the term "securitology" is a science or sciences on security. Throughout the centuries security has been the major source of interest in various fields of science like for instance environmental, technical, medical, agricultural and social, but above all including particular science fields which go back to the very beginning of human discovery of the reality. Some of sciences have always focused the attention on the human being as the main source of interest and his needs, but other sources provide us with different ideas while being influenced by a new science called securitology, which in turn determines the human dependence. In addition, security refers to a practical knowledge of various fields of economy and every day life.
