Learn how to transform the building blocks of your firm’s operational risk management programs into a cohesive operational risk management strategy. This advanced course examines operational risk management in the financial services industry on two fronts: 1) current and emerging practices in the operational risk management discipline, and 2) the organizational, regulatory, and governance factors that affect how a financial services firm addresses operational risk. Participants will build a solid conceptual foundation and apply this in practice through hands-on case studies and exercises.
