Stories to Scare the I.T. Out of You

October 14, 2019

It’s 10PM… do you know where your backups are? If the ghosts of incidents past come haunting you this Halloween, take comfort in knowing you’re not the only IT pro to have faced sleepless nights from frightening disasters of all kinds. Do any of these spooky tales sound familiar?

  • The end user who haplessly introduced back-to-back worms and infected not hundreds, but hundreds of thousands of files
  • The engineer whose mistyped command terminated enough servers to bring a hyperscale cloud down for half a day
  • The snake who sought refuge from bad weather by somehow slithering into a supposedly secure datacenter and inadvertently cut power
  • The admin who discovered too late that backup tapes piled haphazardly on the floor of a dank basement may become mummified
