I don't think there is any excuse for a single keeper of the keys. For something this grand of a scale, there should have been some separation of responsibilities and abilities.
I guess San Fran learned the hard way.

Well for starters he wasn't the King only a fool who had no supervision and even worse here Management seemed incapable of supervising their own.

You first need to dispose of the entire Management Team and Infrastructure when things like this happen as they and the System in Place allowed it to happen. The fact that someone went Native is no excuse for poor management under any circumstances.

After you dispose of the Guilty and the entire System that allowed the guilty to have their way you replace them with Professionals who will refuse to allow something like this to happen again. They will refuse to work in a situation where they have no Protection from Wild Unsubstantiated Claims made by foolish people who know no better.

Doesn't matter if it is a Computer Network of a Bank like Bearings if you allow someone complete control you are on your knees begging for them to do as they like and someone will.

Seems that when Common Sense is allowed to have a sensible look Child's isn't at fault at all.

However the System that allowed this to happen is very badly broken and I don't know after years of Downsizing if it is even possible to repair. The constant downsizing if nothing else gets the blame is the single biggest problem here, but appointing Managers who have not Technical Idea hasn't helped one bit either.
