Hallová, M., Polakovič, P., Šilerová, E. and Slováková, I. (2019) “Data Protection and Security in SMEs under Enterprise Infrastructure", AGRIS on-line Papers in Economics and Informatics, Vol. 11, No. 1, pp. 27-33. ISSN 1804-1930.DOI 10.7160/aol.2019.110103.


Information is becoming a highly valued commodity of strategic importance in the period of globalization of trade, cooperation and mutual integration of companies. These facts bring a new perspective and the importance of adequate information security in IS/IT, especially in connection with their electronization and electronic exchange. The protection and security of IS/IT is therefore becoming increasingly important for companies and is one of the key factors for the economic success of SMEs, as well as in agricultural organizations and rural development organizations. Management's interest in IS/IT security and information results not only from a threat to prosperity, but also in the case of the threat to the company's own existence. By analysing the risks, adopting IS/IT security policy, developing safety standards, and implementing security in the life of the company, the security process does not end but comes into a qualitatively new stage. At the moment when the main problems are solved and the environment, at least to a certain extent ready, there is time for important routine activities. This is monitoring, control and audit.


Security of IS/IT, SMEs, incidents, risks.
