"In today’s interconnected digital age, the issue a management team will face is not likely to as simple as a
computer system or website that is down; they are much more likely to face a situation where fundamental areas
of their business are inoperative. The old adage “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” could not be more apt. Moreover, taking the time to clearly understand a firm’s business drivers and think strategically about pitfalls—and opportunities—should competitors, counter parties or other major components of the financial system go down, could provide the ability to act nimbly and appropriately at a time when vision really matters."
