Defence Principal Secretary, Mr. Patrick Mariru, today, delivered a lecture titled “Defence Policy in a Rapidly Changing Global Security Environment” to course participants at the Joint Command and Staff College (JCSC) in Karen, Nairobi.

During the lecture, the Defence PS highlighted the complexities and uncertainties posed by the current global security environment. “There is a need for defence policymakers to remain vigilant and proactive in the face of emerging threats, including rapid advancements in technology, evolving geopolitical dynamics, and unconventional security challenges,” underscored the PS.

Mr. Mariru discussed how traditional security paradigms are being challenged by non-traditional threats such as cyberattacks, terrorism, and information warfare and emphasized on the importance of adopting a comprehensive and adaptable defence policy that is agile enough to address these multifaceted challenges.

His insights on addressing both traditional and non-traditional threats highlighted the importance of proactive and adaptive strategies in safeguarding national security.

The PS further provided a thought-provoking analysis of the evolving global security environment and underscored the imperative for defence policymakers to embrace innovation and flexibility in shaping defence policies. He noted that by staying alert and continually reassessing threats and opportunities, nations can better position themselves to safeguard their security interests in an ever-changing world.

The lecture offered a timely and critical examination of the evolving global security landscape, centred on the necessity for swift and innovative defence policies.

Present during the lecture were JCSC Commandant Major General Eric Kinuthia, Deputy Commandant JCSC Brigadier Faustine Lobaly, and senior directing staff at the college.
