A very relevant and debated problem of economic security is considered in this article in a completely new aspect, namely, from the standpoint of the author's hypothesis, which is that the economic security of the enterprise is a significant factor that determines its investment attractiveness. Special attention is paid to the analysis of the methods of economic security assessment proposed in the economic literature and to the substantiation of the author's approach to the development of a specific method intended both for the identification and diagnosis of external and internal barrier and restrictive factors, threats and challenges that negatively affect both the level of economic security and the assessment of the non-systematic component of investment risk characterizing the investment attractiveness of the enterprise.
