Op Risk + Technology

A bit of an update from me on what's happening at OpRisk & Compliance this month.


First, I'd like to thank everyone who took the time to fill out our readership study last month. This kind of feedback really helps the editorial team to understand what you want to read about and what form you would like to read it in.

The good news is that our readers like us! You said the magazine was easy to read, easily understandable, well-written, accurate, and "essential reading". You found the articles by industry experts, regulatory news, our special feature articles, and our other news sections to be both interesting and useful to you in your work. And you would like to see more global coverage, especially from the Asia-Pacific region.

We'll continue to make changes to OpRisk & Compliance over the coming year, to reflect the issues our readers have raised in the survey, to provide you with more tools and resources, and also to help get information to you more quickly. If you want to give me or any member of the editorial staff feedback in the meanwhile, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Turning to the world this month, I'd like to bring our readers' attention to a new information tool we are launching in September, in conjunction with BaselAlert.com. This is our first e-symposium – an online conference that will be held on Wednesday, September 13. The all-day event will feature regulators and bank executives from around the world – from Australia to Washington DC – speaking about the progress they are making in Basel II implementation in their own countries. Readers – and their friends and colleagues – can register for the event for free at www.baselalert.e-symposium.com. Do join us!

Also we are launching our new online blog this month – a sometimes irreverent look at the operational risks banks face and their compliance failures. This new blog will be written by Peter Madigan, our reporter who will be moving to New York in August, to take over from Choongo Moonga. Choongo will be leaving us to attend law school. Peter promises to make his new blog – called "The Boiler Room" – something that you will want to bookmark, and read every day.

We also have a new online training arm, called CIFT, which our parent company acquired a couple of months back. The complete range of CIFT's offerings, which include online training for operational risk, money laundering, and other compliance issues is available on www.opriskandcompliance.com at the "online training" button.

You may have noticed that we have "tweaked" the website and the monthly alert as well last month. We are hoping to add more functionality and interactivity to the website over the coming year – so stay tuned!
