Re: Sony , B-Movies and $ 2 bins
"..That's the thing about free speech. You don't have to like what someone says. But they do have the right to say it..."

 

@Marilyn Cohodas     Yes this is true.   But is there such a thing as responsible free speech ?   I think so, and I would expect leaders of industry to consider and practice this as well.

Re: Sony , B-Movies and $ 2 bins
"Aggressive propaganda" is an interesting way to describe how North Korea might perceive the movie. Though I wouldn't credit Seth Rogan & company with a political agenda.. just making a silly movie that apparently did pretty well in the (home) box office, in spite of the threats. That's the thing about free speech. You don't have to like what someone says. But they do have the right to say it...

Re: Sony , B-Movies and $ 2 bins
I don't think any national government would be happy with a production about murdering their current sitting leader.  It is not funny.  Not a good joke at all.  It would not be surprising if the agrieved country would take the production to be aggressive propaganda.

So Now What ?

Ok now that we have confirmed it was N. Korea - Now what ?   I have heard sanctions ...etc.   What real  difference is that going to make ?   Were we not doing business with them already ?  

 

I am hearing everything but what Sony is doing to clean house.   Oh I guess it is kind of hard to update the public while email is still down.

Sony , B-Movies and $ 2 bins

"...The Interview, the new Sony comedy about assassinating Kim Jong-Un, Clapper said he watched it over the weekend "and it's obvious to me that North Koreans don't have a sense of humor."

 

I am not sure how to take this statement.   Is this tongue and cheek ?  Flippant ?   Or just bad form ?    Either way  the comment does nothing to address the real issues here.   Whether you agree with Kim or not - that is not the point.   The movie was unnecessary and bad form - which is what Sony apparently does best.   You mean to tell me Sony executives could not find a better way to spend 50 M  ?   Who am I kidding ?   Of course not, they are Sony execs after all. 

 

That ridiculous given aside, I really don't think we should be wasting anymore taxpayer dollars on worrying about the N.Koreans in terms of Sony.   If they(Sony) want to produce completely disrespectful product ( in the name of freedom of Speech ) which is no better than a B-Movie comedy destine for the $2 bin.  

Don't expect tax dollars to clean up the mess  they make.

Improving Enterprise Cybersecurity With XDR
Enterprises are looking at eXtended Detection and Response technologies to improve their abilities to detect, and respond to, threats. While endpoint detection and response is not new to enterprise security, organizations have to improve network visibility, expand data collection and expand threat hunting capabilites if they want their XDR deployments to succeed. This issue of Tech Insights also includes: a market overview for XDR from Omdia, questions to ask before deploying XDR, and an XDR primer.
