Blumenthal Praises Sony’s Efforts to Answer Questions on PSN

Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT, and the man who once railed against "Beer Pong as Connecticut’s Attorney General) said in a statement that Sony’s response to the security breach and service disruption on PlayStation Network and Station.com "could serve as a model for other companies facing similar criminal hacking."

Blumenthal also praised Sony’s promise to offer a year of identity theft protection to PSN users as a "strong first step toward protecting millions of consumers whose personal and financial information has been compromised."

"While I continue to believe that Sony should have warned users earlier, I am pleased they are providing protective measures including an insurance policy to cover identity theft harms to consumers within a 12-month window — but I would hope Sony would extend coverage over a longer time on a case-by-case basis if necessary," said the Senator.

Blumenthal and the House Subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing, and Trade, sent letters to Sony recently demanding answers in the wake of the breach, and applauded the company’s efforts in responding to congressional inquiries.
