The financial crisis revealed that many banks data and IT infrastructure was not fit for purpose in its ability to capture and report the data needed to quantify each institutions exposure to risk. 

In response to this the Basel Committee published BCBS 239, providing banks with a set of principles designed to strengthen their risk data aggregation capabilities and the accuracy and adaptability of their risk reporting practices.

This course is aimed at those who may be involved with the implementation or support of systems and services in a BCBS 239 regulated world. The course provides an overview of the regulatory compliance objectives and progress. It then focuses on the practical data and systems impacts which are likely to be required and maintained. Also covered are some insights into the compliance led business changes which may need to be implemented.
