From 06 May 2018 to 09 May 2018    International Foundation Level for Compliance Officer Function    in Cairo / Egypt

Risk Management: Measuring and Managing Operational Risk in Banking

In cooperation with the House of Training Quality Circle in Risk Management and ALRiM


The basic objective of the course is to familiarize the participants with more advanced concepts and techniques for managing operational risks and implementing a permanent controls framework as part of internal controls and internal audit principles.

Operational risk will be placed in the general context of banking risks including, identification, measurement and management/mitigation of these risks. Relevant Basel frameworks and concepts (Basel I to III) will also be touched upon.

The course is set up as a combination of class lectures, practical exercises and presentations by the participants will be used. Active trainee participation is expected as the approach focuses on insights and practice, rather than on theoretical concepts.


Target group

Professional bankers (central and commercial banks) having to implement or renew internal controls frameworks. Broad knowledge of their bank’s products, processes, general risk management principles and a willingness to share, increase insights in and management of (operational) risks and controls.


Duration and location:

in HoT-ATTF partner countries: 3 - 4 days, depending if sequential translation is needed or not.
