A multinational banking organization.
A car bomb exploded outside the bank's offices in an Eastern European capital city causing substantial damage.
In the hour following the explosion, the prepared emergency plan was put into action. This involved the formation of a Crisis Management Team in the UK HQ, and the evacuation of all expatriate staff from the area to their relevant embassies. Subsequently 45 expatriate staff were evacuated to the UK within 16 hours. Alongside the security of personnel, a business continuity program was immediately activated which involved the securing of fixed assets and a program to ensure IT security.
