Operational Risk has historically been considered by many as the less-important-“younger brother” of Credit Risk and Market Risk. Operational Risk has been growing in importance within financial services providers, being them top tier 1 banks, brokerage firms, investment management firms, financial boutiques, among others.
The fundamental aspect of operational risk is that if a given (operational) risk occurs e.g. a real cyber threat, a building malfunction preventing staff access, a server that blows up, a communication line that stops working, among many others, this will most likely cause other risks to materialise, such as a variety of financial risks, reputational risk or counterparty risk, to name a few.
This webinar is an overview of the practical techniques collected from industry best practice that apply and to financial institutions in general.
