Did ONE high-tech worker bring RBS to its knees? Junior technician blamed for meltdown that froze millions of accounts
A junior technician in India caused the RBS computer meltdown which froze millions of British bank accounts, it was claimed last night.
The ‘inexperienced operative’ erased a massive swathe of information during a routine software upgrade for the Royal Bank of Scotland and its subsidiaries NatWest and Ulster Bank, according to reports.
The worker was understood to have been part of a team recruited in Hyderabad after the bank laid off more than 20,000 UK staff and outsourced work abroad.
