Critical incident notification for financial services and insurance
The financial and insurance services sector is responsible for managing and insuring trillions of dollars of investment and assets on behalf of individuals, pension funds, private companies and governments. It is critical to the success of this industry that business operations are kept up and running 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
A business disruption event of even a few minutes could cost the business and their customers millions of dollars as the financial markets move against them. In such a 24/7 industry it is vital that business continuity planning is of the highest order and that effective disaster recovery arrangements are in place.
The risks that financial services and insurance providers are exposed to include:
- IT service outages
- Fast-moving cyber attacks
- Data security breaches
- Market moving events
- Liquidity crises
- Critical events requiring building lockdown or evacuation
Having a reliable critical communications system in place enables the rapid activation of a response team to quickly keep operations running throughout a business disruption event. Crises Control equips providers with the integrated communications platform needed to reach out to their response teams and customers, handle the disruption and return to business as usual as quickly as possible.

Case study - financial services provider
A leading financial services provider, with 400 employees in London, needed an incident notification platform to alert employees at their London City HQ, and also travelling across Europe, of critical incidents via cloud-hosted e-mail, SMS, telephone call and push notification.
They needed a multi-channel incident notification platform to warn employees of critical incidents, whilst they were either office based or on the move.
The global spread presents a significant communications challenge in terms of delivery of critical messages and security. They also needed to be able to check on the location and safety of individual employees who were travelling and receive responses from them.
