New York, NY (PressExposure) November 13, 2009 -- The Edcomm Group Bankerâs Academy has recently updated its Operational Risk training program to include new topics and additional activities. Focus on Operational Risk has been revised as part of Edcomm Bankerâs Academy commitment to providing the most up-to-date and pertinant financial services information.
Operational risk exists in all aspects of banking activity. Therefore, employees need to know how to identify, assess and mitigate operational risk while complying with local and international risk management standards to help reduce risk to the bank. By learning what risk is and how it operates, employees will be better equipped to handle it and protect their customers, their co-workers and their bank.
Focus on Operational Risk, from Edcomm Bankerâs Academy, is a computer-based, distance learning program that teaches students everything they need to know about operational risk in an interactive and self-paced format. The course begins with an introduction to operational risk and the operational structure to help employees understand the importance of managing operational risk. Focus on Operational Risk also covers operational risk mitigation, operational risk monitoring, operational risk control, operational data reporting and analysis and the BASEL II Framework for Operational Risk.
