Deni Connor of Systems Strategies NOW stated in a news release, "An IT catastrophe is not a question of 'if,' it is simply a question of 'when.' It is astonishing that any IT executive could continue to neglect his/her data centers in such an egregious fashion, yet keep their jobs."
I think I have said and know I have thought the same thing about crisis planning in general many times.

Connor nailed it: "It is simply a question of when," not if.
