Considers briefly the global threats to democracy from organised crime, drug trafficking and terrorism. Discusses the differences between terrorists and other criminals, and the increasingly international nature of criminality. Outlines the role of the United Nations, and the stimulus to international cooperation given by the terrorist attacks on the USA. Warns, however, that even the best security measures and governmental protection cannot prevent all risks, so that companies require a crisis management policy for damage limitation in case of attack.
