Sosnin O. V. Risks and threats of the digital age.

The first steps on the way to the new century were marked by the almost instantaneous introduction of the latest information and communication technologies in all spheres of life and the desire to remove with their help the deep problems of the organization of our lives. We waited for it with incomprehensible thirst, and some invisible force pushed us to break the chains that connected the present with all the testaments of the past, which, however, have the meaning of real life.

The world of digital technologies, in which we are immersed deeper, really changes our attitude to them and we should know that this is not only a new logical stage in the technological sphere of human development, but also the transformation of all legal, socio-political and, above all, scientific and educational reality. Unfortunately, there are still not many generally accepted and harmonized philosophical definitions and legal definitions, without which it is impossible to build a policy, however, digital technologies are already rapidly capturing bridgeheads for development, causing new risks and threats to which we must prepare an algorithm.

Key words: information, communication, information and communication technologies, digitalization, digital society, education, national security.
