Sony PSN Recertification: New Efforts to Oversee Security

Sony are planning on taking a Chief Information Security Officer to work alongside Sony in the wake of all the trouble. They will report directly to the Chief Information Officer “Shinji Hasejima,” whose job it will be to oversee the new efforts made by Sony in terms of security measures.

To rectify this, a new addition will be needed with the software to as stated, monitor and protect against future attacks from outsiders, encryption whilst at the same time protecting data. New additional firewalls will be needed with the aid of detecting external intrusions on Sony’s network.

Hey did you guys know that if you screw up bad enough the banks will pull your merchant card account and you can't process credit cards anymore?

I am starting to wonder if this is an inside job...

At least they aren't making shit up like Kotaku and other sites. I get marked down for trolling for some absolute bullshit that I know is the result of xbots with multiple accounts. And if I get banned for using that word than I am almost certain the mods are no better when they let guys like B1663r run free.

Also this update:
discovered evidence that information from an outdated database from 2007 containing approximately 12,700 non-US customer credit or debit card numbers and expiration dates (but not credit card security codes) and about 10,700 direct debit records listing bank account numbers of certain customers in Germany, Austria, Netherlands and Spain may have also been obtained - we will be notifying each of those customers promptly.

There is no evidence that our main credit card database was compromised. It is in a completely separate and secured environment.

So this means that outdated expired CC info from 4 european countries MAY have been taken. Try to spin that, trolls.

I don't know if you're trolling, but I'm pretty sure that you're paranoid.

You only have to be right once for paranoia to pay off.

The mods on N4G are a joke. I've learned this over the years.

They are. Look at the rampant trolls running around each Sony breach article.
