EN In advanced modernity, the theory and practice of security have been modified by the effects of civilization development. One of the differences with respect to pre-modern times is the deconstruction of a simple cause and effect relationship. This state of affairs results from the cultural aetiology of threats, the overcoming of which also lies in the influence of culture, and more specifically, security culture. Safety has always been linked to risk. Today, however, this risk contains a significant element of uncertainty. The purpose of the article is to show new conditions determining the shaping of security culture in the perspective of the risk generated not by nature, but by human. The culture of being safe is the right risk that arises from estimating the likelihood of negative effects of civilization development. The above objective is related to the following questions (research problems): How does the risk determined by the progress of civilization affect the process of shaping a culture of security? To what extent will the risk society create the culture of reduction of this risk?
