Lawsuit Alleges Sony Failed to Protect its Computer Systems Against Hackers

cloud securitySony continues to feel the pain of the recent hack in which employees’ “most sensitive data, including over 47,000 Social Security numbers, employment files including salaries, medical information, and anything else that their employer Sony touched, has been leaked to the public, and may even be in the hands of criminals,” according to a lawsuit filed by Sony employees.

The class-action lawsuit alleges that the company failed to protect its computer systems against hackers. The plaintiffs allege that Sony knew about weaknesses in its computer security “for years” but “made a ‘business decision to accept the risk’ of losses associated with being hacked.”
