CEO Jack Tretton didn't minimize the breach, grouping Sony with others that have been hacked in recent weeks. "If you read the newspapers, you realize that there are companies being bombarded with people trying to hack them all the time."
Some organizations hesitate to involve law enforcement in their breach investigations for fear that exposing the hack would cost them their reputations and money. A Justice Department contingent tells a gathering of lawyers why that impression is wrong.
A silver lining is emerging behind the rash of breaches that occur all too regularly. The fact that these breaches make the public more aware of the vulnerabilities is encouraging in efforts to make the Internet safer for all.
