Business owners are often good at determining how exposed they are to different business risks. Traditional risks like fire, theft, or liability are fairly easy to understand because decision makers have years of historical experience to draw from. Decision makers take certain steps to control these types of risks – they install sprinkler systems, or have fire and burglar alarms, they do a good job of housekeeping around their business premises to eliminate slip and falls. But what about emerging risks? Like Cyber Risk? This is uncharted territory for a lot of business owners, and for society as a whole. We don’t know how or when claims can occur entirely. We don’t know what a breach will look like, or what it could cost our firms. We may even think “it can’t happen to me” as a self-defense mechanism and sweep that risk under the rug, just hoping it actually doesn’t happen to me!
