Ensuring of information security and personal data protection in e-government environment are the main challenges of e-government technology. Along with the development and expansion of e-services of the e-government, these problems are becoming more acute. Reliable information security requires a systematic approach, flexible and appropriate to the conditions management model. This article analyzes the current state of research in the field of e-government information security management  and selects actual problems for further research. (pp. 19-26)
