Abstract: The modern era is characterized by multi-communication.  In the Internet age, where you can find about three billion of IPs, which represents the physical counter of the users connected to the Internet at a time, we can find information of all spheres of activity, corresponding to different information demands. In this avalanche of information should be considered two points: the quality of the connection (communication hardware and software parameters) that included the absence of any intruder of any kind, which means the act of communication security and the second element, is the environment of the communication in which all participants are more or less employees. About collaboration systems and some ways of ensuring proper management of information security environment we will talk about in this paper.

Key words: communication systems, collaborative systems, security management of information and informatic systems, private communication network.
