Ex-Homeland Security Cyber Boss Joins Sony

After the lengthy and rather traumatic PlayStation Network outage which lasted nearly a month and compromised the identities of nearly 77 million users, Sony has taken a step to ensure that it’s now-larger PSN userbase and service are kept safe from another assault by hiring Phillip Reitinger to the position of senior vice president.

Mr. Reitinger is the Ex-Director of the US National Cyber Security Centre and has held a previous post in the Department of Defense, a worthy resume indeed.

Between this new hire and the use of actual experts in their evaluation of the recovering network’s security, Sony seems to be taking things seriously this time and are set to be among the most secure in the business.
