ABSTRACT. The latest developments (warfare, economic crisis, acute epidemiological situation, etc.) in the recent history indicate that the states are intellectually affected by the intelligence, that points out the importance of the issue. Consequently, it is important to define the information leakage sectors and intelligence aspects related to this process, which serve to develop appropriate self-defense mechanisms and to ensure the state's national security. Internet penetration in modern societies overruled information security issues, therefore increased risk and the need to provide information security. The role of internet interference in the field of information provision became particularly urgent in the XXI century. Computerization processes significantly simplified the organization of business (and not only business) processes. Simplified communication process, that became an integral part of everyday activity, that seemed to be impossible before, but such technological developments always bring disadvantages: this is a new type of crime - cybercrime and cyber espionage that has become one of the key directions for the intelligence services of countries.
