sony are supporting (along with epsilon) the government action against online security breaches.
Top executives from the companies said they are backing the new law. the new law is that the companies will tell their customers immediately after data has been compromised.
Bono Mack said "For me, one of the most troubling issues is how long it took Sony to notify consumers, and the way in which the company did it -- by posting an announcement on its blog," Bono Mack said. "In effect, Sony put the burden on consumers to search for information instead of providing it to them directly. That cannot happen again."
i believe that sony were fast enough with telling customers about the hacks. they needed to find out how big the attack was before telling the public. sony said themselves the same thing. sony stated they "needed time to determine what had happened"
this is good for sony's PR. But with the number of hacks and $170 million bill to fix things it looks bad for sony.
Sony need to show the customers that they care about the data. Hopefulkly they will figure it all out.
BTW, sony isn't the only website that has been attacked in the last few months.
Hopefully they find the hackers and sue them! (like they did Graf Chokolo :P)
