From a blank slate in 1991 to massive foreign investment, Russia and the CIS provide one of the best case studies for assessing the results of globalization onto the security industry. Through the 1990’s, there were manifold impacts and improvements that globalization brought to the Russian security sector. However, since then centralized corporate structures and localized financial crises have caused the suffocation and stagnation of the Russian Security industry, further exacerbated in recent months by geo-political pressure. This talk aims to discuss the problems, solutions and compliance issues that accompany security in the Russian Federation.
