DEVELOPING STUDENTS' CULTURE OF TRUST AS A PREVENTIVE MEANS OF COMBATING CYBER EXTREMISM

L. Astakhova

Federal State Autonomous Educational Institution of Higher Education “South Ural State University" (RUSSIAN FEDERATION)
The relevancy of developing a culture of trust in young people as a means of countering cyber extremism is substantiated in the article. The resolution of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe No. 1344 "On the Threat to Democracy from Extremist Parties and Movements in Europe" (2003) defines extremism as "a form of political activity that explicitly or subordinately denies the principles of parliamentary democracy and is based on the ideology and practice of intolerance, alienation, xenophobia, Anti-Semitism and ultra-nationalism". Different types of extremism are identified on the basis of this definition, cyber extremism being the most dangerous. The high degree of cyber extremism threats is due to increased availability of the Internet and excessive gullibility of young people. A study of the influence of cyber environment on students of a Russian university was conducted, and a high level of trust for cyber environment was revealed. The forms of cyber extremism are described. Preventive measures to neutralize cyber extremism threats are justified. It is proved that a culture of trust is the most effective preventive measure for protection from cyber extremism threats.

The definition of students' culture of trust, based on a balance of trust and mistrust, is formulated. Levels of students' culture of trust and their criteria are defined. A study of the level of students' culture of trust is conducted. Pedagogical conditions for enhancing students' culture of trust are proposed.

In the process of this research, culturological, psychological and sociological approaches were used. Culturological approach allows us to consider the culture of trust as a way of organizing human activity in the face of increasing threats of cyber extremism and terrorism. Psychological approach makes it possible to reveal culture of trust levels. As a result of applcation of a sociological approach to the study, the level of culture of trust of university students was revealed to be low.
