They had planned for this, had systems and strategies in place, and were sure they couldn’t be hacked.

Insurance companies have made billions calculating risk, mitigating harm, and essentially planning for disaster. But, that doesn’t mean planning for disaster has to always feel like working with an insurance company. In the land of technology, risk management and disaster planning are more than risk pools and actuarial tables.
