re: Sony Slapped With $390,000 U.K. Data Breach Fine
It took 2 years to figure that the breech was due to poor IT security, wasnGt that obvious? David Smith was correct; when people disclose their credit card information to companies there is an obvious responsibility for the company holding that information maintains it securely. A mere $390,000 doesnGt really seem to cut it when the number of compromised accounts is 77 million, especially as large as a company as Sony is.
