The dissertation is dedicated to the study of theoretical and practical issues related to information security as a function of modern states. Based on the comparative legal analysis of both international legal acts and national legislation of Ukraine, foreign legislation and experience, several information security models as well as their features are identified. The suggestions and recommendations for improving the information security of the Ukrainian state in the context of European integration, intervention and development of the global information space have been stated. The main area in the implementation of the information security state function is the protection of the information field of a person and his or her rights in it, but today there is no body responsible for information security in the system of central bodies of state executive power of Ukraine. Therefore, we propose to establish a specialized, national, collegial body for personal data protection - the National Commission for Personal Data Protection. Its establishment should be carried out based on optimization, economic feasibility, quality technical and personnel support as well as wide powers. The main tasks of this body should be as follows: protection of the rights of citizens in the field of personal data, regulation of personal data protection, control and sanctions, information and education. A priority measure to counteract Russia’s informational influences should become a modernized system of counter-propaganda activities. We believe that the development of a national idea taking into account modern challenges and focusing on the protection of religious values and Ukrainian national traditions should be the components of effective counteraction to the implementation of the “Russkyi Mir” project. The great popularity of social networks and the blogs, their active use for propaganda, misinformation or interference in the political processes of the state, lead to the necessity of the establishment of their legal regulation principles. In particular, it is essential to start a public discussion on the possibilities of regulating political blogging. In our point of view, the mechanism of taxation of both online media resources and activities related to their use, as well as state supervision over the activities of political bloggers, having a large audience (from 100 thousand subscribers), etc., seems the most advanced.
