The financial crisis showed how interconnected/interdependent banks are financially. It's obviously not any different from a security standpoint. The challenge has been getting banks to work together to ID and fight these kinds of threats, which they have been reluctant to do (collaborate).

1 Tbps attacks? Wow. No single enterprise could withstand that. In fact, as you point out, an attack of that size could cripple service providers as well.
