Metrodome collapse video: nothing's really secure

Check out this video of the Metrodome collapsing over the weekend. Let this be a reminder that no matter:
  • how much engineering goes into a system
  • how much attention to detail the contractors pay during construction
  • how much insurance coverage you have
  • how detailed and "water tight" your contracts are
  • how many fail-safe features are available "just in case"
...that bad things can and will happen. Be it in a building or on your network there's no guarantee of safety and security.

The real question is: what are you doing today to prepare for such an event? How are you going respond rather than react when something does happen so you can minimize the impact to your business? The clock's ticking.
