The implementation areas of information security carried out by every country are the protection of political, state, public interests, moral values and human rights from internal and external encroachments by potential stakeholders. The goal for the latter is always to meet their own needs, and the issues of responsibility and legality of actions taken by such entities usually do not cause them any concern. At the state level, the most successful event for one country's external interference in another's internal processes is the electoral process and the actual presidential election.
