PlayStation Network PSN

Sony has hired Philip Reitinger, former director of the US National Cyber Security Center, to head up its security efforts. Remember back in April when the PlayStation Network was down for a long time, and Sony promised they would "try our absolute best to try and make our system as secure as we possibly can?" The company just announced this major step toward that end.

Reitinger's official title will be senior vice president. He'll be based in Washington and will report to Sony general counsel Nicole Seligman.

"Certainly the network issue was a catalyst for the appointment," a Sony spokesman told Reuters. "We are looking to bolster our network security even further."

Do you feel the PSN is more secure than it was? Do you think Sony is doing enough? Personally, I think the PSN is likely to become the most secure gaming network ever. Sony lost so much money and good will with the outage in April and May, they won't ever let anything like that happen to them again.

All of the best people are following Stephen Johnson's twitter feed. Also, email me if you wanna.
