Introduction: information security is one of the components of the national security of the Russian Federation. Recently, the role of the information component of national security has increased significantly. There are new challenges and threats to the information security of the Russian Federation that require reaction of the legislator. Criminal legislation needs modernization to improve its efficiency in terms of criminal law protection of information security. This is evidenced by a combination of factors that determine the need to strengthen the criminal law protection of information security. Purpose: to study the factors that necessitate the streng­thening of criminal law protection of information security. Methods: the methodological framework of the research is based on a set of scientific methods, including general scientific methods (materialist dialectic) and specific scientific ones (systemic-structural, comparative law and others). Results: at present, criminal law protection of information security of the Russian Federation does not meet the modern realities. Socio-economic, historical, political, socio-legal and criminological factors indicate the necessity of adopting legislative measures. Conclusions: regulations of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation on criminal law protection of information security require improvement.
