Being a cheap bastard doesn't save you money, dumbass
The CEO said the same thing last time this happened to Blackberry, about 2 years ago, and again 2 years before that.
Spend some money on hardware and staff to design, manage, and test your "redundant" systems (which obviously aren't). Then this shit won't happen to you.
On a positive note, this is a great ammo for any IT manager that gets pushback when management hears what it costs to have a resilient network that stays up and running no matter what.
