Just announced, Sony Corp. has named former Homeland Security Chief Phillip Reitinger as their new Senior VP directly under Sony’s general counsel Nicole Seligman. Sony’s move comes in direct response to the hacks earlier this year that exposed some 100 million PSN accounts and caused general mayhem for Sony.
Reuters reports that since the April 27th hack that left a sour taste in many PSN members’ mouths, shares have fallen by 55%. No doubt appointing a security industry heavy to VP is Sony’s way of hoping to stop the bleeding.
