Disaster (security or otherwise) in an agile (scrum) environment

When a disaster occurs in a system. Be that security, data or accidental the first thing that occurs in the psyche of the whole scrum team is:

Something, unusual has happened. Something different has happened. What do we do? What are the next steps.

The very definition of disaster in the Macquarie Dictionary alludes to this.

disaster
 Pronunciation of disaster /dəˈzastə/ (say duh'zahstuh)
noun 1.  any unfortunate event, especially a sudden or great misfortune.
