This case at a university laboratory site, which had recently undergone a major refurbishment, tells a very different story.

The loss was only about £100k and there was no disruption to the use of the laboratory. This would have been a very different situation without the early detection technology.
In the last few years about 40% of the EOW claims are from commercial risks. Early detection mitigates the risk. (Source: ABI)
