What Business Risk?

ComputerWorld reports that a survey commissioned by the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA) found that 15% of respondents admitted logging onto peer-to-peer file sharing networks from work computers despite security warnings to the contrary. A further 74% of the survey respondents said they don't believe that downloading unauthorized content or software to work PCs creates a business risk.

I wonder what these 74% do consider a business risk.
