6. Business interruption
While business interruptions typically conjure up the image of major disasters that create havoc and impact whole communities, such as hurricanes, earthquakes or terrorist attacks, one cannot ignore those occurring on a smaller scale that might not make headlines—a power outage or water main break in the immediate area, fire in a room of a building, a bomb threat, or a workplace violence incident. Organizations must effectively address this risk by identifying all potential threats to their business and evaluating their mitigation options for each threat.
