R. Snishchenko, V. Grynchutskyi


The article is devoted to the definition and substantiation of the role of the information component in the economic security of the business entity. The object of study is the economic, managerial and regulatory processes of the subject of economic activity in its operation under the influence of destabilizing factors. The subject of the study are the theoretical foundations of economic security of the business entity. It is determined that the strengthening of the role of the information component in ensuring economic security is due to digitalization, informatization and globalization of business processes. It is claimed that the use of the results of scientific and technological progress causes the emergence of new types, tools and products of business, accelerates production processes, intensifies trade and exchange. With the development of new technologies, the number of incidents related to information leaks and cyberattacks in various fields: in financial and media companies, in the field of nuclear energy and others increases with geometric dependence. It is emphasized that a significant part of companies does not pay enough attention to the creation of full-fledged protection systems. It is determined that with the participating enterprise is not only a technical and technological complex for the production of material goods and services. Most economic security researchers view the enterprise primarily as an association of individuals to achieve a common goal. The staff of the enterprise is both a factor of production and a source of its development. It is emphasized that together with a large number of positive effects of the introduction of new technologies opens up many opportunities to harm business. In this case, the subjective factor in information security plays a crucial role, and can both harm the business and lead to its prosperity. Due to the fact that the issues of information security of economic entities as a component of their economic security have long gone beyond sectoral problems and require further careful study at the level of the state and society as a whole.
