Summary/Abstract: The article, starting mainly from the concerns of Romanian authors in the field, intends to highlight the importance of education and training in defining, building, supporting and designing a Smart Power strategic model, as a way to make optimal use of the resources and power tools a state has at its disposal for national interests, values, objectives and goals. Currently, one of the relevant characteristics of the security environment is the quantitative domination of information. Its production, management, manipulation, multiplication and capitalisation transcend strictly institutionalised boundaries, and the effects are found in all areas of society. In this context, the specific training and education of specialists in intelligence institutions, accepted as one of the power tools of states, takes place under the complexity of the evolution of information and means of transmission and processing, in socio-economic developments, including pandemics, as well as under the pressure of the dynamics of political debates and actions.
