The article focuses on financial markets. Ever since the attacks of 9/11 exposed the vulnerabilities of the financial markets, the industry as a whole has worked hard to obviate those risks. Many observers believe that vulnerabilities remain. Jay Pultz, research vice president at Gartner, breaks down network vulnerabilities into three categories. The first major network vulnerability is access. The next major network vulnerability for a trading operation is a central office failure, usually brought on by a fire or power outage. The third network vulnerability is when the entire network itself goes down.
