Operational Risk Management Framework, Process, and Applications
Overview/Description Target Audience Prerequisites Expected Duration Lesson Objectives Course Number Overview/Description
Basel regulations include established principles and guidelines for managing operational risks and holding adequate capital to cover potential losses from operational risk events. The Basel Committee requires a bank or a financial institution to have an adequate operational risk management framework for this purpose. As a result, an operational risk management (ORM) framework and corresponding ORM processes should comprise important steps such as identification, assessment, reporting, monitoring and control, and mitigation of operational risk. The ORM efforts at a bank yield several management applications aimed at business goals such as risk awareness, loss reduction, and risk optimization and mitigation. This course discusses various aspects of operational risk management framework, process and applications in banks. It identifies key risk events, characteristics of an operational risk management framework, and steps in an ORM process. The course then discusses key management applications of ORM efforts, challenges, and components of ORM deployment strategy.
Financial services professionals, consultants, and sales professionals interested in providing or selling products and services to banks and other financial institutions, and everyone interested in knowing about credit and operational risk exposure to banks and capital requirements to cover those risks in light of the Basel framework.
