Excuse me, what just happened? Resilience is tough when your failure is due to a ‘sequence of events that was almost impossible to foresee’

 

Thinking about how to design and create resilient systems is tough, especially when the failure path is not apparent or is buried deep within the system design.  So called “Black Swan” events are those once in a life time catastrophic events whose failure paths often only become apparent after the event but expose flaws which in hindsight were all to apparent.  Read this great article from the “The Register” website on some basic steps to help design and test your critical communication and data systems to help avoid that “Black Swan” event.  https://www.theregister.com/2021/06/12/how_to_make_tech_systems_resilient/
