Summary/Abstract: A long time, Europe is trying to find the strength to stay with the same values preserving individuals' rights and freedoms. Global concerns are put before the national. In such an environment there is no place for nationalist / populist ruling political structures. But a wave of migrants caused by tectonic movements in the Middle East and north Africa, as well as terrorist attacks in Paris, Ankara, Istanbul and Brussels, has created Europe to live with a "new normality". That feeling of fear that terrorist attack will happen again, changed the face of Europe. In this context, the governing structures are aimed at defending national interests, disregarding the global. This situation does not correspond to policy led by the EU. In a situation where we need to be united, there is separation.We can mention several reasons that led to it: The policy of integration of minorities in national societies. That policy has led these people to be excluded from the system or can not be integrated, and found solace in terrorism; Neglect of issues related to security challenges. Not investing in security structures. Different perception of security challenges such as: brothers bombers from Brussels, for the US they are terrorists, for Belgium they are criminals. The purpose of this paper will be based on analysis of the terrorist attacks in the last 15 years to determine the need to strengthen public - private partnerships, the timely exchange of information and identifying potential terrorists through profiling of high risk clients in the financial system, especially banking system. Through this platform of cooperation we will not guarantee that every terrorist attack carried out by a wolf - a loner or a cell of a terrorist organization who decided to die blow up with home made explosives will be prevented, but it will help in early identification of suspicious activities which must not be neglected by the security services. We mention this because for the last terrorist attacks in Belgium and Paris, law enforcement agencies had information but they ignored them thinking they are frivolous.
