Sony defends response time to hacker
Page (1) of 1 - 05/18/11||
Sony Corp's CEO was unapologetic about the company's delay in informing owners of more than 100 million accounts of its networked services whose information was stolen by hackers last month.
In a stark departure from the remorseful tone struck just two weeks ago, when senior executives including heir apparent Kazuo Hirai bowed in apology in Tokyo, Sony Chief Executive Howard Stringer fired back at critics who say the company was too slow to notify consumers once the attack was known.
"This was an unprecedented situation," Stringer told reporters on Tuesday, speaking publicly for the first time since the April breach.
"Most of these breaches go unreported by companies. Forty-three percent (of companies) notify victims within a month. We reported in a week. You're telling me my week wasn't fast enough?"
