Managing Operational Risk Within the Financial Sector

To ensure we meet your expectations and maximise your return on training investment, we favour a classroom/workshop style set up for the delivery of our courses. Please note we therefore have a limited number of spaces available and these will be assigned on a first come, first accepted basis. We recommend early booking to avoid disappointment.

Course Introduction

Operational Risk takes many forms that pose significant challenges for every firm.  Risks covered by the discipline range from current hot topics including cyber, IT in all its forms, outsourcing, data management and operational resilience through traditional risks including regulatory, financial, crime, and conduct to new and emerging risks. Sound Operational Risk Frameworks are built on a strong governance framework, effective culture, employ a comprehensive categorisation for causes, risks and impacts and set clear and measurable risk appetites.

This course will cover all aspects of effective Operational Risk Frameworks and provide training that will give delegates a new or improved understanding of operational risk management and enable them to build strong and robust Frameworks. The programme includes a review of the essential foundations of an Operational Risk Framework, the available tools and techniques and covers issues that will impact the effectiveness of the Framework and the value added. The course will also cover risk governance, roles and responsibilities and emerging Operational Risk issues, including climate change and geopolitical developments.
