The aim of the article is to start a discussion on the problem of the Polish reason of state in cyberspace. Therefore the assumption of the work is to refer to strategic documents and to work out on their basis the boundary conditions for the verification of the notion of the
reason of state in cyberspace. The work provides two scientific elements. The first one is a proposal to measure at a high level of generality the reason of state in cyberspace using tools derived from realism and constructivism. The second is the verification of the applicability of this tool to documents of strategic importance and the determination of a qualitative
reason of state on the proposed research model. The text opens with a methodical consideration of the construction of tools for researching Poland’s reason of state in the area of cyberspace. The article points to securitization as the main factor for considering Poland’s reason of state in cyberspace combined with the property of defensive actions.
