Like a single character that took down a sizable portion of the

You mean a "one-off" cost? Sometimes that's the issue. Other times,
it's bureaucracy run amok, with endless meetings that are little more
than territorial scrambles by self-interested parties, the insane
diktats of which line engineers and IT admins will have to make a show
of implementing lest the entire thing be shown to be a giant sinkhole
of time, money and serotonin and which results in little more than
security kabuki theater.

*grumble* *grumble*
