Operational risks pertain to that set of risks, which arise from an organization's operations. Some of these are- fraud risks, physical risks, environmental risks and legal risks.

Extending the definition, one gets that risk emerging from sources like 'people', 'systems', 'internal processes' and 'external happenings' is classified under the head 'operational risk'. There can be malfunctioning or failure in any/all of these components, which makes it important to use a monitoring tool. This serves the purpose of keeping things 'on track'.

Due to the very broad scope of this subset of 'risks', it is not possible for a single department to take care of the complete range.

For instance, HR departments are involved in taming personnel risks; IT (Information Technology) division ensures that information risks are kept to minimum.

Moving on the basics of operational risks, one deciphers that all organizations are likely to become victim of these dangers but firms belonging to banking sector have been particularly found to be at a higher risk.
