This 10 Days course will develop an understanding of the importance of operational risk management within the Banking and Finance industry and build an appreciation for the impact operational risk can have. The focus is on the practical implication of operational risk, rather than just the theory. To this end real-world examples and case studies are used throughout. The aim is that participants not only leave with a better understanding of operational risk, but also how better to manage it. The goal of this course is to understand how risks are categorized, quantified, monitored and managed within banks, and the related regulatory requirements.
Who should attend?
