The program runs for 5 days

Our Enterprise Risk and Control Self-Assessment (ERCSA) training program provides the necessary back-end tools and techniques to test the efficacy of the enterprise-wide risk management (ERM) framework. It determines the risk maturity of organizations for effective implementation of the ERM and whether or not controls are working as designed. ERCSA is a process whereby enterprise risks that may arise from business strategy, objectives, systems, products, processes, and activities are identified, and the effectiveness of the controls over those risks are evaluated, tested and monitored. It provides an end-to-end tool for the identification, measurement and evaluation of risks and an assessment of established controls for risk treatment to ensure that they are effectively controlling the risks.

Absence of Risk and Control Self-Assessment culture in most banks has resulted in untold problems of risk management. Adequate knowledge of risk identification, understanding and profiling, in all areas of the organization, enables appropriate application of control to effectively manage the risks. The ERCSA training, therefore, underscores the virtues and need for a consistent framework for describing business activities, processes, risks and controls, monitoring and testing those controls, assessing the controls and reporting of the monitoring and assessment activities. It articulates the business control environment and facilitates adherence to corporate standards and regulatory requirements. In this course, we establish process whereby operational and other enterprise risks that may arise from business strategy, objectives, products and activities are identified and measured, and the effectiveness of the controls over those risks are evaluated, tested and monitored.

The training will enable your bank to undertake performance assessment of your enterprise risk management framework and to consciously enhance policies and procedures to consistently identify risks, apply effective controls, undertake continuous self-assessment; report and monitor control issues and establish adequate corrective action process to address the issues. Enterprise-wide Risk and Control Self-Assessment takes risk management beyond the realm of policy pronouncement and documentation and establishes a culture that fosters thorough understanding and ownership of the process by the entire workforce and the ability to speak one language with respect to enterprise risks and internal control process. It is a prerequisite for the institution of a sound control environment in your bank and assures adequate response to compliance with the Risk Based Supervision (RBS) Framework recently introduced by the Central Bank of Nigeria and the Nigeria Deposit Insurance Corporation for banking supervising.
