Operational Risk

From Open Risk Manual


Operational Risk means the risk of loss resulting from inadequate or failed internal processes, people and systems or from external events, and includes legal risk[1].

This includes loss from events related to technology and infrastructure, failure, business interruptions, staff-related problems, and from external events such as regulatory changes.

The name originates from the fact that this risk category concerns threats to the normal operations of the firm or organization. Any Risk Event realization under the operation risk Risk Type would be denoted as an Operational Risk Event


Given the wide range of business models, operational risk is a very broad category. It is customary to decompose operational risk using a Risk Taxonomy
