The article surveys the necessity of taking the measures to neutralize threats to national security in cyberspace, which are specified with the rapid growth of dependence of state and military authorities on the using of various automated control systems, which are the targets of the realization of cyber impact of enemy in case of a possible military-political conflict between countries. 

Every second, the dynamic processes take place in the cyberspace which are characterized some cybernetic activities – an action that provides access to various information resources or intelligence activities with the using of software and information networks for the purpose of collecting information about information systems and resources of enemy.

This article describes the importance of national security in the cyberspace. It is justified the urgency and the necessity of intelligence activities in cyberspace of the enemy in this article. It is defined the stages, components and the methods of cybernetic intelligence in cyberspace and critical data is identified which must be collected in the realization of intelligence activities for providing the headquarters with information gathered about the enemy. It is considered comparative characteristics of intelligence in cyberspace and it is determined the main criteria for their construction. The main advantages and disadvantages of active and passive method of intelligence gathering and integrated approach are proposed with the benefits of each method, which will allow increasing the efficiency of cybernetic intelligence in information and telecommunication networks.
