They must embrace risk, including operational risk, with the confidence that they are prepared for and resilient in the face of challenges and opportunities. But transformations such as cloud, mobile and the Internet of Things have meant an increasing number, complexity, and velocity of risks that your organization has to respond to, often within a very short period of time. To be effective, organizations must be able to consistently identify, assess, address and monitor risk through its entire lifecycle in order to respond ahead of the curve and to be prepared when new risks and opportunities emerge. In this presentation, we’ll discuss the challenges to effective Operational Risk Management today, the most important elements of an effective ORM program and the keys to designing and implementing a successful ORM program
