Economic indicators are closely interrelated. Therefore, only their systematic definition can provide a true picture of business` economic threats. It has been identified that there are different approaches to assess threats to enterprise`s economic security in scientific literature. The main are the indicator and resource-functional approaches. It has been determined that the main disadvantages of the first approach are a substantial number of indicators, difficulties to measure their marginal values, not taking into account changes of external and internal environment. It has been specified that nowadays application only of the resource-functional approach to assess business` economic security is irrational, since the security itself is defined as the ability of an enterprise to face threats and ensure its development in the future.
