Streszczenie The article analyzes the issue of new risks and challenges of cybersecurity of companies operating in hyperconnective space. The development of information and communication technologies affects the transformation of social space. The implications of technologically mediated transformations of the social world are important and affect the most elementary structures. One of them is the market. Transformations of market structures are visible in the processes of emergence of system and network systems. Hyperconnectivity is a new logic of highly networked business spaces in the relationship economy. The imperative of universal digitisation revolutionises not only the way of doing business, but also the way of thinking about mutual relations within wider network structures. Cyber-security of enterprises in a hyperconnective space does not only concern technical issues. The social dimension of cybersecurity still seems to be neglected in the descriptions of technological threats constructed within technical systems.
