The consequences of the fourth industrial revolution led to the introduction of robust cyber-physical systems and modern software in various fields of life activity. But their prevalence and availability have caused the growth of cybercrime in the world and the emergence of information wars, initiated by different countries. As a result, it leads to the destabilization of the country's economic, political, and social sectors, and impedes its development. The purpose of this study is to analyze the leading indicators and consequences typical for information wars, as well as to develop an approach to modeling the spread of their results as factors of country economic destabilization, in the form of a bursting of the «information bubble» — the SedovTaylor shock wave model. The article analyzed several critical indicators, the factual data of which made it possible to imagine that there is a constant increase in the number of information wars that are carried out by one country against others. It is manifested by the rise in the number of hacker cyberattacks aimed at various areas of activity, the empowerment of cybercriminals, the emergence of the government political motivation to carry out information propaganda, and cyber espionage. The paper also analyzes the main financial consequences of cyberwars globally, which characterize the growth of global economic losses and losses for companies in various sectors of the economy. To increase the effectiveness of control over the consequences of information wars, the author proposed to use the Sedov-Taylor shock-wave model in the form of a burst of the «information bubble» to simulate the spread of the consequences of information wars, as a factor of country economic destabilization, for banks, enterprises and the state as a whole. Such models will make it possible to identify vulnerabilities in the country's information security system for further shaping its development strategy.
