Use Case for Assessing Risk on Consigned Items
Why assess the risk? Banks still occasionally sell traveler’s cheques and U.S. Savings Bonds. Holding items on consignment or for resale requires stringent physical and inventory controls, as well as prudent dollar limits on inventory. It is essential that the bank minimize its risk by providing proper internal controls, operating procedures and safeguards to protect against claims arising from mishandling, negligence, mysterious disappearance or other unforeseen occurrences.
Who should assess the risks? Chief Operating Officer, Operations Managers, Teller Supervisors, Cash Management Officer
How to assess the risk: Rate the KRIs to determine if a threat would successfully exploit a vulnerability and to justify expenditures to implement countermeasures to protect the bank’s assets or reputation.
