Operational Risk Management:
Always-on visibility of operational risk

Helping organizations manage continually evolving risks to business operations.

What does ‘good’ look like?

A good operational risk management program keeps loss events within tolerance and maintains operational resilience. A strong operational risk management strategy provides an always-on visibility of operational risk status, updated as KRIs, KCIs and other key metrics change.

The business anticipates when the frequency or impact of operational loss events exceeds tolerance and takes action.

Risk management decisions are made with confidence, based on solid data and effective analysis.

Risks are communicated clearly to stakeholders.

The operational risk program continually optimizes and proves value over time by comparing outcomes against predictions.
