Operational risks include the most basic forms of risk a company has to deal with. They relate to a companys ability to perform business functions. They include legal and fraud risk, failure to follow a business processes or a faulty business processes, technological and physical risk (catastrophic events, accidents), and dramatic changes in the environment in which a company makes its business. Examples could be an inadequate market risk control system that leads to large losses or, failure of a computer server without proper backup systems, or a large earthquake. The identification and measurement of operational risk is a central issue for modern-day banks, particularly introduction of a capital charge for these risks as part of Basel II.
