ORX publishes report on lessons learnt for op risk from coronavirus

  • 14 July 2020

Global operational risk management association, ORX, have published a report exploring what operational risk functions the financial sector has learnt from the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. The report, developed from conversations with more than 100 of ORX’s member organisations, looks at what went well and what could have been improved.

Headline findings

  • Operational risk reacted fast to keep financial organisations going
  • More clarity over third party dependencies could have reduced risk and vulnerabilities
  • Operational risk scenarios were not built for events as severe as the pandemic
  • Operational risk profiles have changed quickly, and the function needs adjust accordingly
  • Organisations can use the crisis as an opportunity to evaluate practices, processes and controls
