Solutions to the problems of information security along with technical means of information protection, also depends on the culture and skills of people. The paper analyzes the various approaches to the definition of the notion of information security culture, clarifies the relationship between information security culture and corporate culture, and proposes a conceptual model of information security culture in the e-government environment. It also identifies a number of challenging scientific and practical problems in the field of formation and development of components of the proposed conceptual model. (pp. 80-88)
