Cyber Security: Protecting your crown jewels
The infamous Sony breach was dubbed the ‘hack of the century’ for a reason. The intruders stole and dumped all of Sony’s confidential information to public file sharing sites, exposing a large amount of sensitive data about customers, employees and the organisation itself. They also wiped out half of Sony’s global network, driving the company to the regressed usage of fax machines, communication through postal messages and the cumbersome payment, with paper cheques, to several thousand employees. The hack repairs cost the company €14 million in addition to lost revenues and reputational damage.
