The work concerns the problem of the management of security issues in Poland, especially in the perspective of Small and Medium Enterprises. The growth of Information and Telecommunication Technology has caused major impacts on business. Thus, serious security questions may be raised concerning small companies. Significant aspects of security issues are discussed, e.g. types of targets, types of attackers, legal issues and some recommendations for businessmen. The research is based on a review of works published in recent literature. The main method used in this inquiry was a case study. Additionally, the paper contains assumptions regarding further development of methods to secure information and communication systems. The results of the research reported here can be important both for business and academia. The recommendations may constitute the basis of improvement in the security area of activities supported by computers.
