Whether as a result of nefarious activity, self-inflicted problems or plain old bad luck, scarcely a week goes by without another major outage or data loss hitting the news. One of the most significant of these this year was the TSB system outage after a system ‘upgrade’ that left up to 1.9 million customers locked out of their accounts. The problem persisted for several weeks and resulted in secondary impacts such as fraud. It is fair to say that the firm significantly underestimated the risk, impact and duration of the problem. The reputational damage was compounded by the unfolding scenario being played out in public and ultimately cost the Chief Executive, Paul Pester, his job following rebukes from both the Treasury committee and FCA.
