Depends on the business here

But the most obvious one is without a working Net Connection all work stops.

You do not directly control the data but this may not be important depending on the business.

If Satellite or Undersea Lines get damaged there is no International Net Connection and hence no work.

If either of these happen they are not repaired quickly.

That would mean

you would join their new 'central' domain and your current domain controller would be become a backup controller for it usually.
If you don't have a BDC locally no one can login if the link is down.
Security risk would depend on the nature of the link, low risk I would have thought, especially compared to a service interuption.

The rest of it is management, ae they going to discontinue your domain admin functions so you have to ring up japan to get things done, or are they going to give you access on the central server?

I'd suspect the former...
Centralistion is usually connected with a reduction in manning costs.
