No, that’s not mortgage risk. Someone’s already done that and look where it got us. No,I’m talking about mortgaged risk – the act of saving time or money by accepting risk that is hard to measure but easy to hide or ignore. The risk is essentially a mortgage on your future. A hidden cost that will be paid eventually.
In this episode of The Deep Queue I consider just how much risk has been stuffed into the closet over the years. There’s a lot of unsecured MQ out there, after all. Up to now I’ve focused on what it means to the companies who are exposed. But this month I propose that this massive amount of deferred investment represents a great opportunity for companies positioned to perform assessments, implement remediations, or provide tools.
On the lighter side, listener email this month included a funny cartoon which I hope you enjoy.
