Principles for the Management of Operational Risk
This webinar highlights the evolution of operational risk management. The principles outlined in the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) report are based on best industry practice, supervisory experience and cover three overarching themes: governance, risk management and disclosure. We will look at the practicality of these principles and the implementation factors with each of them.
Why Should You Attend:
Although financial institutions have been managing risk exposures for years operational risk management as a discipline is relatively new. The change in focus to operational risk management has been driven by a number of factors, led in the first instance by the compliance requirements of bank regulators. Regulators look to the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) to formulate position and regulatory consensus in the world.
“Principles for the Sound Management of Operational Risk” highlights the evolution of operational risk management. The principles outlined in this key BIS report are based on best industry practice and supervisory experience, and cover three overarching themes: governance, risk management and disclosure. In this webinar, we will discuss the practicality of these principles and the implementation factors with each of them. We will examine a powerful banking case study and put these Principles to the test.

In “Sound Practices for the Management and Supervision of Operational Risk”, published in February 2003, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision published a framework of principles for the industry and supervisors.
Since then, banks and supervisors have expanded their knowledge and experience in implementing operational risk management. Loss data collection, quantitative impact studies, and range of reviews covering governance, data and modeling have contributed to industry and regulatory knowledge.
As a result of these changes, the BIS determined that the 2003 Sound Practices paper needed updating to reflect the operational risk management practices now in use. “Principles for the Sound Management of Operational Risk and the Role of Supervision” assimilates the evolution of sound practice, detailing eleven principles of sound operational risk management covering (1) governance, (2) risk management environment and (3) the role of disclosure. By publishing an updated paper, the BIS enhances the original sound practices framework with specific principles for the management of operational risk that are consistent with sound industry practice. This new document replaced the 2003 “Sound Practices” and became the document referenced in the Basel accords.
