Either way, all organizations must find a way to reduce their insurance costs to ensure they can protect themselves without spending too much money.

However, it is most important to stay calm, reassure the person, and make sure they are safe; then you must handle the business side of the incident.
Ethical risk management is incredibly difficult, mostly because you cannot predict what an employee is thinking or control every one of their actions. However, finding ways to manage this risk is vital: one person’s choices can cost millions of dollars, close down a business forever, and do significant damage to the people who trust you to provide them with products and services.
