Back in April 2011 Sony’s entire network was hacked revealing personal information to those who it does not belong to, for which a UK government agency has decided to fine Sony a £250,000 penalty for not doing enough to protect that personal data of its customers, for which the Information Comissinor’s Officer or ICO said that Sony’s security measures “were simply not good enough.” adding that the company should have known better due to their technical know-how, “There’s no disguising that this is a business that should have known better.”

This may not seem like a lot of money however ICO fells as though it is a “substantial” punishment, for which he explained in the video embedded below.

Of course Sony Computer Entertainment were not happy about this and have mentioned that they intend to appeal ICO’s decision.
