Diversity of processes in the contemporary international environment and the attendant effects, including security risks bring rapid changes in society. On the other hand, new opportunities and challenges are characterized by globalization of security and modern security paradigm, triggered by the overwhelming number of processes within existing systems of national security that modify the state's role in ensuring the safety of its citizens or residents.

In the contemporary security paradigm appears a tendency to provide individual security or deviation to the concept of ensuring security of the individual. Security is becoming a fundamental civil right which requires the synthesis of a wide range of state and social policies, including respect of human rights.

International terrorism, as one of the security risks, against which many countries have accepted anti-terrorism laws, which intervene in the free exercise of individual rights and that leads to an imbalance between freedom and security.

Keywords: Human Rights, Civil Rights, Globalizing Security, Individual Security.
