The article reveals the mechanisms of personal information protection in chat. A number of problems have been identified that are key to providing a secure information space for communication. A formal description of global communications using discrete structures is proposed. It is emphasized that the protection of personal information is an important issue in distributed services and network communications, including cloud services. Therefore, special technological and organizational measures should be applied to protect personal data. The purpose of protection measures, both specially technical and organizational, is emphasized. The fact that the rights to confidentiality are related to personal information that can be directly collected in the process of using online means of communication is substantiated. It is stated that it is possible to collect and record any personal information without the knowledge of the user, and, moreover, personal data may be lawfully transferred to any third party. A model of communication on the Internet has been formed, which includes two separate groups: participants / persons defined as a set of users who have the ability to initialize remote access via the Internet and information environment, with specific technological components to determine the specific structure and purpose of space, including module for pre-registration and data collection in its own database. A graphical interpretation of the life cycle of personal data processing with a detailed description of each item is proposed. All possible links between the data protection policy and the general structure of the security policy and the structural levels of the personal data protection system are structured. Four main mechanisms for the protection of personal information in the chat have been formed and it is proposed to further form a unified approach to the implementation of the system of personal information protection in social networks, taking into account international experience.
