This paper reviews the material for studying of history of the economic security problems. Studying of the security problem will help us how we need to define term “security”.

The author proposes to consider the question: Where is the term “security” derived? It traces from the Ancient Greek word «aspháleia» and Latin word «securitas» that literally means “security”, “safety”, “protection”.

For this paper have used ancient Greek and Latin literature review for the security problem and interpretations of original pieces.

In short, the ancient Greek and Roman philosophers, historians and politicians paved the way for the origin of the modern security science.
