As institutions seek to create value, they are faced with significant risks. AThese risks if not well managed can adversely impact effective service delivery, continued profitability, and corporate sustainability. In the Nigerian Financial Services industry, inability to effectively manage these risks in a holistic and proactive manner rather than in silos, has resulted in the liquidation of some institutions. Therefore, this course seeks to enable participants develop a process to continuously identify a risk and risk-event universe; create a risk profile that includes a defined risk tolerance, quantification and prioritization of risk events and identification of current controls; establish risk responses that include accepting, sharing reducing or avoiding risks and implementing controls and procedures; and monitor/report process that includes creation of key risk indicators (KRIs).
