Sony Appoints Ex-Homeland Security Exec

Sony Online Entertainment has announced that Philip Reitinger has been hired as its "chief information security officer". Reitinger formerly worked in a subsidiary branch of Homeland Security called the U.S. National Cyber Security Center.

According to the article at GamesIndustry.biz, Reitinger's appointment is a clear sign that Sony is hoping to prevent any further hacking attempts on its networks similar to the catastrophic attacks in the spring of 2011.
