The economic security of the state has a significant impact on the activities of domestic enterprises, which are constantly under the influence of a large number of threats, the effect of which leads to significant losses and damages. In such conditions, more and more attention is paid to the study of the main factors of influence and ways to ensure the economic security of entrepreneurship in the country.
Analysis of recent researches and publications. The issue of economic security of entrepreneurship is one of the most urgent topics of today's discussions. Among the problems of ensuring the economic security of entrepreneurship, the lack of a common methodology for the comprehensive assessment of the economic security of entrepreneurship and the impact of international component on it can be called. The issue of the impact on the level of economic security of entrepreneurship of the factors of international cooperation as an important factor remains poorly studied.

The proposal to include in the method of assessing the level of economic security of entrepreneurship is substantiated by three other indicators, which reflect integration into international cooperation.
Conclusion. The imperfection of the economic and legal business environment in Ukraine does not guarantee the proper protection of the economic interests of business entities in Ukraine. It is also an objective obstacle to the formation and strengthening of the principles of a democratic system, the development of the middle class, raising the level and quality of life in the country and its regions, and as a result, it undermines the basic principles of national economic security. Currently, there is one methodology for assessing the level of economic security of entrepreneurship, which needs to be expanded, and the conducted analysis of factors affecting the state of entrepreneurship in Ukraine proves that it is desirable to add three indicators to the system of assessing the economic security of entrepreneurship: the share of foreign investments in the amount of total investment of entrepreneurship (interest); Duration of import operations (days); the share of foreign investments in the amount of investments for the research developments (R&D) (percentages).
