Due to the high speed of modern transformations of the economic system, caused by the fact that information and digital technologies had appeared in all spheres of society, as well as by the widespread penetration of the Internet, the economic conditions and interaction mechanisms of economic entities started to change. Virtual technologies of promoting goods and services, the development of various Internet services for interaction between business entities and the population, are becoming predominant. These technologies provide, on the one hand, convenience and speed of data transfer, and, on the other hand, create new, still unexplored threats to economic security and integrity of the state. In this regard, the need to find adequate tools and methods to ensure the economic security of the countries of the world is of particular relevance. The purpose of the scientific article is to study the concepts of "DeepWeb" and "DarkNet" as new specific threats to the economic security of the state through the disclosure of their content, mechanisms of influence and the infliction of economic damage to the national economy. The authors systematized effective tools for leveling threats to economic security from the actions of the DeepWeb and DarkNet networks available in foreign practice, and also determined the directions of the state's activities applicable in the Russian context. The author's developments and recommendations can be applied as a scientific base in building a system to ensure the economic security of the state and the dynamic development of the national economies of the countries of the world.
