Socioinformation security can act as interventions and technologies with the aim of neutralization and prevention of dysfunctional destructive impact of information on social relations of any individual, organization, and state and society as a whole. Communication consulting is perceived as a an important regulatory mechanism aimed at reducing risks and providing social information security. В качестве одного из важных регулятивных механизмов управления, направленного на снижение рисков и обеспечение социально-информационной безопасности, предлагается отнести коммуникационный консалтинг.
