German Chapter

The German Chapter of IOR will promote the development of the discipline of managing operational risk and provide support to practitioners in one of the world’s leading economies and hub of financial services. The Chapter will also seek to open a dialogue with regulators and other relevant associations in order to further promote awareness and recognition of the discipline.

 We would like to encourage everyone to use the members area and in particular the body of knowledge from areas such as past events and the Sound Practice Papers. If you have any work that you feel would be useful to others members, please send it to us for publication.

Attached is a best practice paper on Reputational Risk Management which has been written (in German) by a workgroup from the participants of the IOR RepRisk Forum. The work is not formal Sound Practice Guidance and does not claim to be a definitive paper, but it does cover governance, strategy, tasks, definitions and the whole reputational risk steering process, including reporting.
