Headlines in recent weeks have been consumed with the news of a cyberattack that targeted Sony’s movie studio as it geared to release The Interview, film that describes a CIA attempt to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong- un.
The company could face tens of millions of dollars in costs from the massive computer hack that hobbled its operations for days. Major costs include investigations into what happened, computer repairs or replacements, and steps to prevent a future attack. Lost productivity while operations were disrupted will add to the price tag.
The attack, believed to be the worst of its type on a company on U.S. soil, also hits Sony’s reputation for a perceived failure to safeguard information. Recently on October that U.S. President Barack Obama signed an executive order to strengthen security measures for federal credit cards, and urged banks and retailers to follow suit in an effort to combat cyber theft and identity fraud. Several major corporations would take steps to make their own systems more secure and offer more customer protections as well.
These recommendations came after many other large companies including Adobe Systems, Automated Data Processing, Citigroup, E*Trade Financial, Fidelity Investments, Home Depot, HSBC, JPMorgan Chase, Nasdaq OMX, Neiman Marcus, Target and Wal-mart had suffered high-profile cyber security breaches. It is not beyond the realm of possibilities to think that today the information of every American has already been compromised in any of these publicly disclosed attacks.
For instance, JPMorgan Chase, America’s largest bank with $2.39 trillion in assets, has revealed that about 76 million households and 7 million of small-business customers have been impacted by a cybersecurity attack in one of the most sweeping disclosed global breaches. Unknown attackers stole customers’ contact information, which included names, email addresses, phone numbers and addresses, affecting an amount equivalent to two-thirds of American households.
