Operational Risk Management - Part 2


This eCourse consists of two modules on operational risk. Module 1 looks in detail at tools and techniques for assessing and managing operational risk.

Module 2 provides an overview of how and why operational risk management emerged as a separate risk discipline, how it has evolved subsequently, and how it could be affected by emerging risks. It also looks at some high-profile operational risk events that have resulted in bank failures, fines, and/or losses and the lessons learned from these events.


On completion of this course, you will be able to:
- Identify the main tools and techniques used by banks at each stage of the operational risk management cycle – identify, assess, manage, and monitor
- Recognize the role of other tools and techniques such as business continuity planning (BCP) and insurance in operational risk management.
- Identify the main factors that led to the emergence and development of operational risk management in banking
- Recognize the key lessons to be learned from some high-profile operational risk failures
