Although April 2011 was an extremely tough time for the Sony brand, senior vice president Michael Denny has now stated that the PlayStation Network hack made the company stronger and more focused.
When PSN was offline for 25 days, nearly 77 million users had their personal information stolen. Many PlayStation 3 owners were left outraged and terrified by the occurance which made it that much harder for Sony to pick up the pieces.
"We were the victims ourselves, as a company, of illegal activity, and of course you have to take lessons out of that," stated Denny, "The first thing I say when I'm asked this question is that we rightly apologise to our consumers for the way that it affected them."
Now seven months after the occurance, Denny states that Sony has indeed learned from this horrible experience and have now upgraded their security making it one of the leading security systems worldwide.
"It focuses the mind when things like that happen, and we'll do our utmost to make sure that our consumers' experience isn't interfered with again."
Hopefully now PSN users can feel as safe and secure as they once were. As the saying goes, "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger." This definitely seems to be the case for Sony.
