This official university postgraduate course, which has been attended by about 40 executives from the civil and military world and from public and corporate security, has developed different aspects, which at a strategic and operational level can be useful tools for managers and security professionals in the context of international security
The General Director of the Civil Guard, María Gámez has closed this morning the I Official University Master's Degree organized by the CUGC (University Center of the Civil Guard) "Senior Management in International Security".
With her words, the General Director wanted to thank professors, experts and speakers from the Civil Guard, from the Carlos III University of Madrid and from various fields of national and international security for their work during the development of this master's degree and will congratulate the students for their hard work and effort.
He wanted to emphasize with his words that "in today's world, and in all areas, public security can no longer be understood outside the framework of global security, and that for this reason, the Civil Guard plays a fundamental role and works actively to continue to build a concept of human security, doing so with the objective of responding both to traditional threats, such as organized crime, terrorism, traditional criminality or threats to national security, as well as to changing and cross-cutting phenomena, among them, those related to climate change, to new forms of hatred and domination, or to digitization ”.
María Gámez has indicated that the aspiration of the Corps is to be able to respond to the different forms of crime with efficiency, closeness and with well-being in mind, with a model that tends to be increasingly preventive. "We need security at the service of freedom and this constitutes the heart of human security," he added.
The Director General has delivered the In Memorian Diploma of this master's degree to the widow of Lieutenant Colonel Jesús Gayoso, a student of the course, who recently died, who has highlighted that he was an excellent person and an excellent civil guard. A man loved and respected by the whole world, a born leader and always a source of pride for this great Institution.
