Agenda Highlights

Session 4: Understanding impact tolerance

Session 5: Effective crisis management

Session 6: Business change management and operational resilience

Session 7: Third-party management

Session 8: Learning from operational disruptions


Since operational resilience is the key current new development within banking it will be important for any firm or
regulator to obtain a good understanding of what these new requirements. They will need to appreciate the work
that needs to be undertaken to achieve these new requirements and how this changes risk management, reporting and governance.

These are important matters to consider. The regulators have stated that firms lack appreciation of operational
resilience issues and concerns resulted in sub-optimal responses to the current crisis, with some of these issues
continuing to impact the organisation.

The next major issue that the banks may need to face could be entirely different to the COVID crisis so solutions
need to be developed that will anticipate and deal with such matters. This course will assist participants understanding of these important issues, how they improve an organization and what the key phases of work to be conducted really are

Who Should Attend

This course is designed for operational resilience staff and management as well as risk champions and executive
