Course Description

BCBS 239 Implementation and Compliance

BCBS 239: Implementation and Compliance - 2 day Training Course

This two day course is designed to address the problems identified by the financial crisis that many data and IT infrastructures in banks were not fit for the purpose of capturing data needed to quantify potential risk exposure. As a direct response to this, the mandate BCBS 239 was introduced in order to provide banks with a set of principles that would strengthen their risk data aggregation capability and adaptability of their risk reporting practice.

This course will provide participants with the principles of BCBS 239, and how to implement them in the workplace, including the front office, risk and finance sectors. Focus will be on the achievement of data integrity and accuracy when reporting, giving understanding of data governance and how to approach it as a tool to rework and perfect processes, achieving business goals.
