Summary/Abstract: Over the past three decades, the internet has become a vital engine of contemporary life. In addition, a nation’s electronic systems are seen as being part of its critical infrastructure, firstly because its malfunction implies a series of dangers in all societal aspects, and secondly because modern life is impossible if it’s not “connected”. While the need for cyber-security has emerged with the development of the first military computer networks during the later part of the Cold War, the implications of security incidents in cyber-infrastructure have multiplied exponentially since. Thus, the security of individuals and of cyber networks gained political significance in relation to the state, to the society, to the nation and to the economy. Given that the cybernetic infrastructure intersects with the financial, transportation, energy and national security infrastructures, Romania has been increasingly confronting cyber-threats, the citizens, the nation as a whole, and also the business and the governmental environments being affected. The paper analyses the reflection of the concept of “cybersecurity” in strategic documents and in the European legislation, as well as the trends of causes of cyber-insecurity at the level of the state and the individual, focusing on the situation in Romania. The analysis aims to track and describe the threats, the risks, the vulnerabilities, as well as their manifestation and the policies developed and implemented in order to ensure cybersecurity in Romania.
