Exposure in risk management is a term that refers to the potential danger that may or may not occur. This is a type of risk. A given risk situation does not present itself expenses for a company, but the protection against exposure can generate them (e.g. insurance or additional investment). If the risk is not mastered, it can result in failure. An important part of risk management is to prepare for future risks.
