Sony Avoids Fine For The Hack

Sony is not demanding the fine amount from the Information Commissioner’s office for the PlayStation Network’s hack even though the hack had caused 77 million accounts to be compromised.

The ICO fined the firm in January for the preventable breach and Sony should have known better as the occurrence fell under the Data Protection Act.

Sony was reported to leave away the appeal after considering it as “commitment to protect the confidentiality of our network security from disclosures in the course of the proceeding.”

In spite of its choice for not seeking fine, Sony is continuing to “disagree with the decision on the merits.”
