Operational Risk Management

Operational Risk Management

In order to meet the challenges of operating in today’s competitive environment and to raise the efficiency of operations, it is essential that a bank understands and evaluates the risks that its business entails and ensures that adequate and effective controls are in place to mitigate these risks.​

Operational Risk Management (ORM) is a process whereby the diversity of adverse events, which can prevent an organization from realizing its objectives, are recognized and appropriate levels of control are implemented to mitigate the likelihood and impact of the risks occurring.​
