The 2008 financial crisis has forced several institutions to revise and reconsider risk management strategies. New levels of uncertainty introduced by the crisis have made enterprises adopt risk management systems that bolster protection against operational risk, emanating from failed processes. With recession exposing woes plaguing the financial services industry, review of operational risk regulatory framework by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision's Standards Implementation Group on Operational Risk (SIGOR) holds significant importance.
