Hidden risks are unknown factors that could have a negative impact on your business. Examples of hidden risks include adverse weather conditions and damage to goods you’ve paid for while they’re in transit. Bad debt also poses a risk, as you may not be able to cover expenses such as payroll if your clients don’t pay their invoices. Data breaches, which occur when your online systems aren’t secure, can result in loss of clients and valuable intellectual assets. You can’t foresee the future when it comes to risk, but it’s a good idea to develop contingency plans for worst-case scenarios even if they never happen.
