The article is devoted to the technologies to ensure the sustainability of information security in the formation of the digital economy and their prospects. It has been shown that the digital transformation of the economy and society is a priority for the advanced countries of the world. It was argued that the safe and sustainable formation of an intellectual society and economy based on new information, knowledge and technology is one of the main goals. The features of the transition from an industrial economy to a new ICT-based information economy were analyzed. The issues of digital transformation of real economic sectors were considered. It was noted that ensuring the development of the modern economy on the basis of digital technologies, the development of high-tech sectors is one of the main goals. Potential areas for digitization of the economy have been identified. The economic features of the main technologies that shape the digital economy have been studied. The stages of analysis of the secure development of the digital economy sectors have been developed. Many concepts of the digital economy are systematized and approaches to its features are explained. Forecast options for the impact of the digital economy on GDP in the countries of the world are given. Mechanisms to ensure economic security, investment forecasts made by different countries to ensure economic cybersecurity are given. Research on the level of economic security and the main threats to the economy was analyzed. The main directions of security of the national economy and the main factors affecting the economic security of the country have been identified. Current approaches to economic security are summarized. The main types of economic security are given and a system of indicators is defined. The structural elements of the system of indicators for the analysis of economic security are proposed. System indicators have been developed to analyze the sustainability of economic security. Criteria for assessing the sustainability of regional economic security have been proposed. The assessment of the cybercrime market in the world is one of the most important issues and the most common types of cyber attacks are shown. An analysis of the state of growth in the field of cyberattacks in different years and the main stages of the evolution of cybersecurity are described. Proposals and recommendations have been developed in accordance with the experience of advanced countries on intelligent cybersecurity technologies.

Purpose of the research. The purpose of the research conducted in the article was a comparative analysis of technologies to ensure the sustainability of information security in the digital economy and to identify their future development directions. Attention was paid to identifying potential areas for digitalization of the economy, the stages of safe development of digital economy sectors.

An attempt was made to develop a conceptual model to ensure the security and sustainability of the national digital economy. The objectives of the research include: 1) Summarizing the modern existing approaches to economic security, 2) Developing a system of indicators of structural elements of economic security, 3) Developing system indicators to analyze the sustainability of economic security, 4) Suggesting criteria to assess the sustainability of regional economic security, etc.

At present, the assessment of cybercrime cases in the world, the study of the types of cyberattacks, the analysis of the state of growth in the field of cyberattacks in different years and the study of its main stages have created conditions for the study. Therefore, one of the goals was to offer tools and mechanisms to ensure the sustainability of information security in the digital economy.

Research methods used. Research methods such as systematic analysis, correlation and regression analysis, mathematical and econometric modeling methods, expert assessment method, measurement theory, algorithmization, ICT tools and soft computing technologies, information theory were used to study the technologies of ensuring the information security sustainability of the digital economy and their perspective development directions.

Achievements of the author. Technologies to ensure the cyber resilience of the formation of digital economy are one of the key issues in the sustainability of information security in the economy. The development of a system of indicators characterizing economic security and system indicators on the sustainability of economic security has helped to achieve some of the goals set by the researcher by supporting the sustainability of the digital economy. The scientific-methodological approaches proposed by the author can support the development of the digital economy as a special tool to ensure the sustainability of its information security. The recommendations presented can lead to more effective results in achieving a secure and sustainable economy in the face of regional conflict and unforeseen interference. The researcher tried to contribute to the study of solutions to the problems that will help each country to ensure the sustainability of the information infrastructure of its national economy through the application of modern ICT technologies. For this reason, the generalizations, models, mechanisms and criteria proposed by the author can help to ensure the sustainability and development of regional economic security and cyber security of the digital economy.
