Modern information technologies are among the most effective channels for implementing the complex impact of the globalization process. Therefore, the issue of studying the security of innovative development of the national economy at the digital level is relevant. The aim of the research is to analyze the readiness of the Russian Federation to integrate into the digital space in all spheres of life, as well as to identify digital threats during the transition of the Russian economy to an innovative development path and to find solutions to prevent threats and risks of cybercrime. In the research process, the key was the analysis method, which allowed to achieve the purpose by deeply studying the outlined issue. The authors reviewed the program for introducing our country into the digital space ‘Digital Economy of Russia’, approved by the Government of the Russian Federation on July 28, 2017 and identified the advantages and disadvantages of this program. Furthermore, the authors give a detailed description of the concept of ‘cybercrime’ and its types, and determine how to deal with threats in the digital space. It was concluded that the implementation of measures aimed at creating an infrastructure for the innovative development of the economy and ensuring economic security for the implementation of priority national projects will create the necessary prerequisites for the implementation of national policy aimed at modernizing the country, Russian Federation gaining a leading position in the global economy, and restoration of world power status and ensuring sustainable development of the country in the socio-economic field.
