Sony's Bolstered Its Security Staff With A New Appointment.

That post has now been fulfilled by former US Homeland Security official Philip Reitinger.

In addition to the 'Chief Information Security Officer' role, Retinger will also support executive VP and general counsel Nicole Seligman in a senior vice president role. Corporate structure is confusing, but Sony was very specific about the reason for the appointment: "We are looking to bolster our network security even further." Which we suppose is good news for the likes of us.
