Wide-Area Disaster Planning Case Study: A Global Financial Institution In Japan

Speaker: Jim Pelczar, International Management & Media (YK)

This case study describes assumptions and scenarios used by a major financial institution to develop a plan and costs options to fulfill its obligations under the conditions of a wide-are disaster impacting Tokyo. The scenario is a high-magnitude earthquake in Tokyo bay, including tsunami. Key issues: the impact of wide-spread liquefaction on the central business district land-fill areas, as well as disruptions in various services that were identified as a result of the Great North Easter Earthquake of March 11, 2011. In Tokyo, the question is not “if” the event will happen, the question is “when” the event will happen.
