Due to an increase in the complexity and unpredictability of internal and external risks that threaten national security, the need to improve the system of national security requires that institutions with responsibilities in national security and defence should be better coordinated, and their role in applying the law should be accentuated by the exchange of strategic information between them. This article is dedicated to political institutions and state bodies with responsibilities in national security of Romania: Supreme Council of National Defence, the Romanian Intelligence Service, Foreign Intelligence Service, Protection and Guard Service in order to build an overview of national security system, underlining the powers and legal status of these institutions and the interdependencies
between them. The author focuses on the control exercised by Parliament on the activity of these institutions, reflected by an obligation to report the activity to the legislative body.
