I guess if the company was using a virtual infrastructure then he would have had to attack the ESX hosts, otherwise they would have just needed to roll in the VEEAM or equivalent backups.

But it sounds like they weren't ready for DR, whatever the cause of the disaster. That was probably down to him too. I guess there is always that risk of mental health problems with many jobs that involve trust, which is why there has to be more than one keyholder for the red nuke button.
