Operational Risk Management

ProTrain Online


Changes in markets, techniques, technologies, and products have altered the landscape of Operations and fueled the explosive development of Operational Risk management. The regulators of financial and public companies are demanding a far greater level of disclosure and awareness by directors about the risks they manage and the effectiveness of the controls they have in place to reduce or mitigate these risks. There is also a greater realization that a major source of earnings volatility can be attributed to the way a firm operates and not "financial risk". All these changes have triggered the need for an efficient Operational Risk Management system in organizations.
