From Open Risk Manual


BCBS D509 is a document published by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision on August 2020 in the Operational Risk category.


Principles for operational resilience.


Through the publication of this consultative document, the Committee seeks to promote a principles-based approach to improving operational resilience. The principles aim to strengthen the ability of banks to withstand operational risk-related events which could cause significant operational failures or wide-scale disruptions in financial markets, such as pandemics, cyber incidents, technology failures or natural disasters. The approach builds on updates to the Committee's Principles for the sound management of operational risk, and draws from previously issued principles on corporate governance for banks, as well as outsourcing-, business continuity- and relevant risk management-related guidance.
