A high level of dynamism and the external environmental uncertainty in the implementation of economic activity leads to an increase in the effect of negative factors on business entities, which can result not only in the deterioration in the financial and economic performance, but also in the development of crisis phenomena. The development and implementation process of anti-crisis measures is associated with a large number of negative factors. This process is much more sensitive to their effects. The influence of some of these effects can not only aggravate the crisis, but also create conditions under which further implementation of anti-crisis measures become impossible, and liquidation the only remaining option. In this regard, the key is to identify the factors of negative effects on business entities at all stages of crisis management, to assess their level of influence and to differentiate risks and threats in order to create an information base for the development of adequate management decisions to prevent or mitigate these effects. Peculiarities and directions of development of the economic system are determined by macro-, meso- and microeconomic uncertainties associated with changes in the market environment, growing competition, conflicts between market participants, and the need to adapt to new business conditions. Uncertainty leads to risks, which explains the increased attention towards their study and management. Risk is an integral part of enterprise management. Ignoring this can lead to irreparable consequences. Modern processes of the development of market environment lead to a significant increase in competition in the domestic and foreign financial markets which, in turn, leads to the emergence of qualitatively new factors affecting the organization and effectiveness of banking activities. All this is accompanied by the actualization of the problem of increasing the risk management effectiveness at different hierarchical levels of economy. An effective risk management strategy should be based on appropriate fundamental studies of the formation of an effective mechanism of financial relations regulation in the commercial sector. Given this, the problem of the development of theoretical, methodological foundations and practical recommendations for effective risk management is very important and of current interest. Accordingly, the urgent task facing the further development of riskology in entrepreneurial activity is to update the conceptual approach to the scientific and practical understanding of risk management by taking into account the causes and consequences of the global financial crisis, as well as enhancing the methodological apparatus for studying the risk management problem precisely in conditions of strong financial instability.
