A balanced approach comparing the Costs of Risk with the Benefits of Opportunities is the best way to make prudent management choices.

What is your appetite for risk? How much should you take? How vulnerable are you? What actions do you need to take to balance the costs and benefits? How can you integrate risk management into your regular planning cycle?

Think there's no real problem?

Do you think you're not dealing with a particularly "risky" business?

Consider how easy it is for a defective product or a design error to result in a lawsuit.
Who's not vulnerable?

Calculate the potentially devastating costs of lawsuits, defense costs, fines and penalties.

And don't forget the indirect costs of management distraction from the "real" business; plus downtime, lost customers, partners or markets, damaged reputations, and critical gaps in insurance coverage.
