2. Compliance and Regulatory Risk: This type of risk arises when a company fails to comply with laws, regulations, or industry standards. Examples include failure to comply with data protection laws, non-compliance with environmental regulations, or failure to meet safety standards.

3. Financial Risk: This type of risk arises when a company is exposed to potential financial losses due to market volatility, changes in interest rates, or other financial events.
