Regardless of job titles, risk management is a shared responsibility by all managers. Compared to accounting, risk is an immature discipline with a variety of risk frameworks competing to dominate. Based on the new Wiley and Sons book, Essentials of Risk Management, due for publication at the end of 2010, this webinar is designed to provide a non-math introduction to an area and discipline that is changing rapidly, especially in the light of the risk management failures that have shattered so many personal and professional lives.
Why you should attend: To avoid repeating the painful operational risk management failures that we have witnessed in such diverse organizations as Toyota's quality failures, banking's loan processing failures, organizations need to address operational risk in a holistic and systematic process. This course will provide an overview of the Basel framework to operational risk and argue that is a viable means for non-banking organizations to categorize and classify the major areas of operational risk. We will do a deeper dive into the two most critical elements of operational risk - legal risk, especially the risks from litigation and discovery, and the risks from financial crimes - internal fraud, external fraud, anti-money laundering, know your customer, etc. This three hour webinar is designed to provide an introduction to operational risk management including the major frameworks and standards in use today and simple techniques you can apply to reduce both legal risk and the risk of financial crimes, and guidelines to institute a systematic approach to operational risk.
