    Key lessons to learn from Sony hacking troubles

    The relentless cyberattacks against Sony should have businesses planning now what they will do when they, too, run afoul of ideologically motivated adversaries, experts say.
    "This is punishment," says Josh Corman, a security analyst for the 451 Group, about the month long string of attacks against Sony websites.

    Again? Like the hacker said "Why do you put such faith in a company that allows itself to become open to these simple attacks?" Just simply ridiculous how Sony has been handling their security.
