Sony’s Troubles

Raj Perumal Raj Perumal Profile: Raj Perumal

Hi folks! So as you probably know by now, Sony had a huge breach of consumer data that ended up in them having to shut down the PlayStation network.

This is a classic example of how nobody is immune to these kinds of attacks. I think often people get a false sense of security with their personal data when they give it to a large corporation, but it just goes to show you that anybody can be a victim.

What can you do to protect your own networks as a network administrator? First off, you should be following the PCI compliance rules that are available to you at the PCI Security Standards website.

Have a reputable 3rd party company also do a security audit of your network. This will provide you with a report that you can follow to increase your security. This way you and your network will be better off!
