The article, based on theoretical discourse, analyses the main approaches to the basic concepts of the information society. It has been proved that the main characteristic of the modern information society is the presence of people capable of critical thinking. Anthropocentrism is seen as an anthropological component of the information society.
It has been substantiated that with the development of information and communication technologies new opportunities for the rooting of democratic values in society appear. At the same time, priority should be given to compliance with the information rights of the individual.
Axiological, epistemological and ontological aspects reveal the philosophical meaning of this definition. The ontological aspect of information security captures the situation created to combat risk, the purpose of which is to ensure the integrity of the object and the stable state of the information environment. The anthropological aspect of the concept reveals the security of the subject of information interaction. The hypothesis that information security is a complex phenomenon of objective development of modern civilization, aimed at promoting the harmonious development of the information society, has been substantiated. Ensuring information security, above all, requires the study of the negative consequences of the process of information technology application, the study of the causes of their manifestation, which will ultimately help to identify the ways to overcome them, thereby forming a secure state of the information environment.
