Commercial & Current Trends

Commercial Risk Management

Commercial interest in risk management is on the rise. Employers wish to hire healthy employees to cut absenteeism and productivity issues. Lenders want borrowers with long, productive lives. Advertisers, marketers, and drug companies seek to tailor material to target healthcare providers and patient populations. Health insurers want to avoid high risk consumers.

People dating want to obtain information on a lover to evaluate health and longevity (Hoffman, 2007).

There is a significant up trend in client losses linked to security breaches that release personal identifiable information (Kelly, 2007). With the economy in a recession, more and more consumers are unable to pay bills. These issues are causing huge losses for companies and consumers that have to pay the bills and absorb losses. Computer crime losses doubled in 2006 due to craftier hackers and laws that now require organizations to disclose security breaches as well as provide adequate security measures to protect personal identifiable information.
As blackmailers and hackers continue to come up with craftier ways to access personal identifiable information for personal gain, companies are being challenged to invest more money into securing the information. Some of the issues companies face is with insiders having access to the information to perform job duties. Hiring practices have tightened in the efforts to obtain more honest employees with less absenteeism and higher productivity levels to hedge against the losses being obtained from the breaches and hackers. Consumers are also being evaluated for health and finance to ensure that accounts are paid in a timely manner to prevent future losses of revenues.
