IBM employee sparks massive bank outage


What if it happened in your company?

Greetings from Singapore! I'd like to pose a question to Reg readers to gain some insight into management practices under different cultural context.

If such kind of massive failure happens in your country/company (as a service provider), what will happen next? I mean, to the unfortunate (or clueless?) sysadm/engineer, Head of IT, COO, and/or even CEO. And where should the buck stop?

Over here in Asia, they will quietly reprimand the the engineer and his/her supervisor, or even let them go. But the buck would usually stop there. Appreciate your comments. Thanks.
