The article studies the development of legal regulation in correlation with the processes of integration of digital technologies in the regime of combating money laundering, financing terrorism and weapons of mass destruction. The research attempts to establish the stage of modern law development in terms of regulating the use of new technologies by the private sector and state bodies. The goal is to study regulatory legal acts and legal practice in the Russian Federation and other countries. The standard legislative initiatives of states in the field of regulation of new technologies, as well as other related legal spheres have been analyzed. The rearch notes the lack of a unified systematic legal basis for the use of technologies such as artificial intelligence, cryptocurrency, and national digital currencies of banks. It has been concluded that there is a high risk of using new digital technologies without modernizing state equipment and improving the regulatory system base for their application. Recommendations are proposed for further development of the database in terms of introduction of digital technologies. A number of conclusions concerning necessitating changes in preparation of legislation on new technologies integration have been made.
