Abstract

The article deals with a set of issues related to the improvement of information and analytical support for processes of making strategic decisions in the interests of the development of the Security and Defense Sector and enhancing the effectiveness of its functioning. The state, approaches and actuality of staffing by strategic level analysts for the security and defense sector are analyzed. The article is dedicated to defining the place of strategic analysis and forecasting of the security environment in the development of such national security important documents as the National Security Strategy, the Strategy of Military Security of Ukraine, the Strategy of Public Security and Civil Protection of Ukraine, the Strategy of Development of the Defense Industrial Complex of Ukraine, the Cybersecurity Strategy of Ukraine, the National Intelligence Program, Strategic Defense Bulletin, etc. The qualification requirements for strategic level analysts are formulated, and the most important characteristics of strategic analysts of the security and defense sector and the possible ways of their education and training are determined. It is substantiated that the priority way of improving the staffing of the Security and Defense Sector may be the initiating of the Master of Science program in Strategic Analysis and Forecasting in the Security and Defense Sector. Solving this problem requires identifying the needs for specialists, developing qualification requirements for them, licensing the master's program and ensuring the proper quality of higher education. In aggregate, this will ensure not only the growth of the quality of strategic analysis and forecast, but also improve the quality of strategic planning processes and, as a consequence, the efficiency of investing national resources.
