Contemporary human civilization is gradually still more and more tied to the use of communication and information technologies and is continually becoming dependent on it. The use of these technologies brings many new phenomena – in addition to the many positives and benefits manifesting itself in all spheres of society's life, there are also completely new security risks and threats to the human society on the other side. One of these phenomena, which is the subject of our investigation, is the information war, which by its multidisciplinary nature is one of the fundamental threats to what we now call information society. The aim of this study is, with the use the relevant methods of scientific research, especially in the field of military and security science, as well as political sciences, to point out that the information war has long gone beyond the traditional military understanding of the term and not only extends to civilian spheres of human society, but through the information and communication technologies which is closely linked to, gradually wipes out the boundaries between military and civilian sector.
Key words: information warfare, information and communication technologies, security risks and threats
