Complimentary Webinar from Harvard Business Review on November 14 – Rules for Risk: A Model for Managing Operational Risks

Webinar Overview

Wednesday, November 14, 2012
5-6pm GMT/12-1pm EST/11-12pm CST/10-11am MST/9-10 PST
 
Operational risks exist in every endeavor and in every organization—including your organization. These include risks like damage to physical assets, business disruption and system failure, data theft, and fraud.
 
Despite knowing how important operational risks are, organizations still struggle with the best ways to identify and manage their operational risks. Organizations of all sizes and in all industries continue to seek out best practices for identifying and managing key operational risks. Organizations also want a governance structure to embed those best practices broadly.
 
On November 14, 2012, in an interactive Harvard Business Review webinar, Philippa Girling will share effective practices for identifying and managing operational risks. She will dissect the management of operational risk, will provide several case studies of organizations that have managed operational risks effectively, and will share lessons organizations can use in creating their own risk management framework. 
 
Girling has thought and written broadly about operational risk management. She formerly led the global corporate operational risk functions at Morgan Stanley and Nomura, and has authored the textbook Operational Risk Management.
 
If your organization faces significant operational risks—and is interested in finding better ways to manage these risks—join Philippa Girling and Harvard Business Review on November 14. You will leave with insights to help your organization create a framework to better manage your most critical operational risks.
