Sessions in this Series: 
Session 1, February 28: Framework and Taxonomy for Operational Risk 
The session reviews the different risk management frameworks currently used in the industry, highlighting the benefits of new contributions such as the revised ERM COSO framework. Next, the session discusses the importance of a risk taxonomy that extends to causes, controls and impacts, as well as highlighting the links between various risks, for a representation of their interdependence and connectivity, rather than a single list. 

Session 2, March 7: Risk Appetite Statements and Tolerance Limits
Risk appetite is the foundation of any consistent framework. This session reviews the best practices for structuring, cascading and communicating risk appetite statements. Based on years of practical experience, this session presents cases, examples and suggestions to define sound risk appetite statements in firms.

Session 3, March 14: A Modern Representation of RCSAs (risk and control self assessments
Risk registers and RCSA have been around in the industry since the beginning of operational risk. Simple in appearance, the tool requires strict methodology and guidance to be applied consistently and to deliver useful information; this session explains how. Addionally, the session reviews essentials of control design and control testing.

Session 4, March 21: Scenario Analysis: Simple Method for Quantifying Rare Events 
Scenario analysis is critically important in risk, both for management and measurement. Quantification of rare events does not have to be guess-work and does not necessarily require heavy quantive background. The session explains how, in a few simple steps, scenario assessement can be decomposed into a useful discussion about exposure, control layers and points of failures, for better mitigation and more robust quantification.

Session 5, March 28: Six Steps to Define and Design Preventive KRIs
Preventive KRIs are metrics of risk drivers. Once we know the causes of a risk, identifying KRIs is easy. This session presents tools and technique to identify and select KRIs, before detailing how to design KRI dashboards and the different alternative to select relevant threshold. KRI governance and reporting will also be discussed.

Session 6, April 4: Operational Risk Management for Projects 
Project and changes are common place in the financial industry. It is only recently that project risk is explictly included in the operational risk management scope. Yet, the coordination between the risk function and the project management teams are not always straight-forward. Based on practical succesful experiences, this session suggests framework and policy rules to assess and address operational risk on corporate projects. 

Session 7, April 11: Information Security Assessment and Essentials of Cyber Protection
Cyber risk is voted top risk for the financial industry for three years in row. This session explains how the same risk management framework can be applied to cyber risk and, more generally, to information security risk assessement. Based on real case studies, it presents a taxonomy for information security risk, essentials of assessement and the key elements of mitigation of cyber and information risk.

Session 8, April 18: Conduct and Culture: Measurement and Management
Culture – or risk culture – is measurable as long as one defines an target objective. Inspired by the Influencer methodology and based on practical conduct and culture assignements, this sessions presents practical ways to approach and influence risk culture in an organisation, as well as most of the common metrics to monitor good conduct in financial companies.
