Operational Risk Identification, Assessment, and Quantification
Overview/Description Target Audience Expected Duration Lesson Objectives Course Number Overview/Description
The Basel Committee identifies operational risk as the key risk that banks face on account of inadequate or failed internal processes, people or systems, or external events. The Committee requires that banks hold adequate capital to cover these potential losses. Banks use a number of methods and tools to identify, assess, quantify, and respond to potential operational risk events. These may include building and using a loss event database, identifying key risk indicators (KRIs), and using tools such as risk and control self-assessment (RCSA), scenarios, and scorecards. The analysis of historic losses also provides meaningful information for assessing the bank's exposure to operational risk and for developing a strategy for their mitigation and control. This course introduces identification, assessment, and quantification of operational risk in a bank or a financial institution including key decisions affecting the determination of internal loss database, the KRI framework, steps in the RCSA process, and operational risk quantification.
