Having analysed statistical data, the article proves that the modern state of subjects of small entrepreneurship could be characterised as instable and dangerous. The state of economic security of small enterprises is influenced by a big number of factors, the most studied among which are macro-economic ones. At the same time, meso- and micro-economic factors of influence upon the level of economic security of subjects of small business are not studied properly. The article identifies a necessity of a conduct of a deep study and systematisation of threats (both internal and external) of economic security of subjects of small business through questioning and surveys. Exact identification of threats, their classification and distribution by levels of influence, selection of indicators of measuring their influence is the first and main stage of development of the system of management of economic security of an enterprise. This influences formation of the complex of necessary measures of warning and neutralisation of dangers, which correspond with the scale and nature of threats.
