Economic security has been and will be a key concept in international economic relations. Nowadays the analysis of this concept became as urgent as it has never been earlier. This paper examines four approaches covering the evolution of the concept „economic security” during history. The process of economic security maintenance is carried out differently in each period of the history. This difference is determined mainly by the evolution of threats. It is proved that threats are modified in the conditions of globalization, so that nowadays it appears another variable in this equation: national vulnerability and economic resilience. That is why; economists have been keeping an eye on what does it mean and who is the object of economic security.
