This article analyzes the legal problems of information security of Russian citizens, in particular, the reform of the information infrastructure of public administration. The study shows that the Russian Federation falls behind the adaption to the contemporary challenges. The formation of a digital society leads to the use of a fundamentally new (based on information policy) government’s paradigm, defined by the interaction between the state, citizens, and the private sector.
The authors prioritize the problem of citizens’ information security. They show that the state legal system in the field of information security and informatization of public administration does not ensure effectively the national interests in the information sphere. Based on the study’s results, the authors propose a concept of the federal law “On Informatization of State Administration and Local Self-Government in a Single Information Infrastructure”. The draft law aims to create an integrated system of legal regulation in digitalized state administration and local self-government as a single information infrastructure. The proposed law can become the legal basis for the creation of an integrated system of public administration using information technologies.
