The presented problem appeared and was described in the 1990s due to the rapid development of transformation processes in Europe, accompanied by crisis manifestations in the economy as a whole. In accordance with its features, the measurement of the importance of socio-economic security of production systems is aimed at the cascade escalation of crisis symptoms and the expectation of a subsequent deterioration of the situation. As a result, the indicators of socio-economic security are fixed on the threshold States of life-supporting subsystems, which to some extent reflect the degree of effectiveness of the anti-crisis measures. These processes have become particularly relevant in the mining and industrial sector, which traditionally has a significant impact on the economy of the Republic of Belarus. In fact, the threshold indicators and methods of their application in level measurements in the direction of the deteriorating state of the production system (for example, pre-crisis—crisis—critical—catastrophic) in the total amount of tools to determine the lower limit (border) of socioeconomic security of the mining sector in relation to the stage of regression of production and decline. In the formation of the financial and economic model, providing for the inclusion of elements of the mining and industrial sector of the Republic of Belarus in the processes of globalization, the values and objectives of the study of the problems of protection of state interests have changed. This is largely due not only to the results of changes in the structure of the internal and external environment, but also the trend of global industrial development, the evolution of methods of maintaining such priority sectors of the economy as mining and the society’s resources to ensure the protection of the production system. The author expresses gratitude to the Ministry of Education of the Republic of Belarus and to the Research Polytechnic Institute within the Belarus National Technical University for the support within the framework of the R&D Project: Generalization of the Socio-Economic Security Experience in the CIS Countries and Recommendations on Improvement of the Socio-Economic Security System in the Republic of Belarus.
