Description: The model of the e-learning system (ELS) for the analysis of its information security threats is proposed in the paper. Peculiar properties of this model are well-defined division of ELS into the components, taking into account the structure of modern elearning systems, inclusion of the hardware part besides the software one, which allow carrying out a complex threat analysis. The ELS structure includes computer infrastructure, e-learning platform, information resources and human resources. Elearning platform as a specific ELS part is considered in detail. Also particular threats to ELS information security are reviewed.
