International Power Generation & Commodity Trading Company
Initial assignment was to review existing disaster plans for high-risk, high-impact areas in the company.
Present the results and recommendations of the study and implement the “agreed to” plans.
An executive team was formed to review the recommendations and risks presented to the company.
Two very high-risk, high-exposure situations were uncovered and recommendations presented to the executive group.
The first was the Trading floor and traders - there was no disaster facility to trade from and meet the legal/legislative requirements of the group. Any outage could have enormous penalties if they were unable to trade and monitor their contract and obligations to contacts.
