THEORETICAL ASPECTS OF THE RESEARCH ON INFORMATION WARFARE AS A NEW PHENOMENON ON A GLOBAL WORLD ORDER SCALE

Andrii Kyrychok

Abstract


The modern dynamic development of mankind stimulates the rise of new methods of influence on the sociosystems. Information warfare is just one of such options. Today it has entered almost every industry on a global scale. Attention to the information policy in general and to the information warfare, in particular, involves mostly the role of information in the modern world order. Intensive and rapid information exchange creates new contexts for the development of the sociosystems. The delayed reaction of the authorities makes it weak in contrast to more information-active players. Therefore, Ukraine needs to understand its place on the scale of the world's sociosystem and to create its own effective strategy of the information warfare. In the article, the author tries to outline the main development stages of the theoretical advances in the field of the information wars and to determine the ways of increasing the information defense potential of Ukraine. In the article, each stage of the information warfare concept development is described step by step.
