The relationship of information security and information culture is examined, on the basis of which information security is studied as an element of social culture. The following definition is formulated: information security – the condition of the information environment that ensures the satisfaction of the information needs of the subjects of information relations, information security and the protection of subjects from negative information impact. Information security is closely related to the information culture, which means the ability to effectively use its information resources and means of information communication and also apply for these purposes the advanced achievements in the field of information resources development and information technology.It is noted that the information culture also has an objective (the culture of ownership of information for something) and subjective (the subject of ownership is a person, society) essence, and the personality is both a subject and an object of information culture.The concept of a "culture of informational self-defense" is singled out separately, combines the features of the material and ideal worldview of a person and forms his informational culture both in terms of information and professional competence culture, and in terms of information security culture. The culture of informational self-defense determines the individual’s ability to handle information without harming themselves and other participants in informational relations; the ability to withstand information threats and maintain mental health in the face of negative information impact.It is established that in the context of changing sociocultural values and taking into account the indicated causal relationships, the solution to the problem of ensuring the information security of an individual should be of a comprehensive systemic nature and carried out at different levels.
