Business economic security

The economic security of the business is aimed at minimizing possible risks and preventing threats, ensuring stable continuous economic activity, gaining advantages in doing business and making additional profit. All other areas of security (legal, informational, physical, personnel), one way or another, are ultimately reduced to the economic component. The goal of any businessman is such a state of his organization, in which maximum protection is achieved from the negative impact of external and internal threats, destabilizing factors, when a sustainable realization of his commercial interests is ensured.

The following main threats to economic security are applicable to almost any business entity:

  • hostile activity of competitors and third parties, unfair competition;
  • counterparty fraud and / or insolvency;
  • illegal fraudulent actions by staff;
  • threats from criminals;
  • threats from government.

In addition, the situation is aggravated by the instability of the political and economic situation in the country, against which fraud, espionage, corruption, raiding and other illegal methods of economic struggle become possible.

To minimize risks and prevent existing threats, you must first of all have the necessary information about what is happening inside the company and in its external environment. Therefore, the key element of economic security is competitive (business) intelligence – a powerful market research tool aimed at identifying the intentions of competitors / contractors, studying the main business trends, analyzing possible risks and threats to develop managerial decisions in order to increase the company’s competitiveness. The results of competitive intelligence are used in the strategic planning process and are the basis for decision making by company management.

With competitive intelligence, a company can:

  • ensure timely receipt of reliable and comprehensive information about current and future financial and economic opportunities of the main competitors and persons who pose a threat to business;
  • to determine the consequences of the actions of the main competitors and persons who pose a threat to the planning of measures to neutralize them;
  • collect accurate and complete information about events and subjects in the market that affect the goals of the company;
  • identify and track the political weight of individual competitors and individuals who pose a threat, and their impact on the business market.

The main analytical tools for competitive intelligence are:

  • study of the financial and material condition of an individual, collection of characterizing information;
  • financial and economic research of a legal entity;
  • comprehensive analysis of export / import operations;
  • current and prospective analysis of the competitive environment.

In addition, the personnel component is one of the determining areas of economic security, since it is precisely the human factor that underlies the vast majority of risks. Negative actions of personnel can entail both reputation and direct material losses for the client. Personnel security includes the following main tasks:

  • development and implementation of a system for selecting and accepting candidates for work;
  • checking working employees and determining their loyalty to the company;
  • assessment of corporate culture and development of recommendations for its adjustment;
  • identification and prevention of fraudulent and unlawful actions on the part of working and dismissed employees;
