This book: provides a sound methodology for operational risk control; focuses on management risk and ways to avoid it; explains why and how information technology is a major operational risk; shows how to integrate cost control in the operational risk perspective; details analytical approaches to operational risk control, to help with scorecard developments; explains the distinction between High Frequency Low Risk and Low Frequency High Risk events; provides many case studies from banking and insurance to demonstrate the attention operational risks deserve; and, assists risk professionals in preparing their institution to comply with the New Capital Adequacy Framework issued by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision, which becomes mandatory from January 1, 2006. Readers benefit from a significantly broader viewpoint on types of operational risks, operational risks controls, and results to be expected from operational risk management - compared to what the reader may gain from books previously published on this same topic.
