Security vs. Pandemic or vice versa? These two concepts interact in a unilateral way in both the personal and social becoming. They, both, focus on the survival instinct; survival could be considered as the eternal and universal force to living. For the purpose of the present article, the meaning of security is extrapolated to many aspects of life and structures, such as State, society, humans. The analysis is performed under the scope of structural parameters of the society, such as safety, State strategic management, globalization, economy, stress, ethos, self-existence and co-existence, social identity, regulatory framework, technology, strategic information and communication. Furthermore, there is reference on the vital concept of self-presence throughout the paper as part of the framework of “Istamology”. In conclusion, there are questions for further consideration on the issue of security and pandemic.
