Effective Enterprise Risk Management for Banks

Overview

Given the current risk landscape, it is imperative that banks establish an Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) program to ensure a holistic approach to risk management and to ensure all necessary tasks are carried out in a coordinated manner.

This course covers all the elements of an effective ERM program designed specifically for banks, and meeting regulatory requirements and expectations. An effective ERM program provides senior management and the board of directors with a solid foundation for risk governance. In addition, this program provides attendees with an overview of significant risks faced by banks and the most common practices in place to address them.

This is an executive-level presentation, where information is shared mainly through examples, bank-specific case studies and personal experience. Major concepts and ideas, as opposed to highly technical or quantitative methods, are used to describe risks and mitigating controls.
