At least three banks have reported financial attacks based on the Swift hack. In February, Bangladesh’s central bank lost $81m (£55m) after fraudulent messages were sent […]

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Bloomberg reports that Sony Corporation has agreed to pay up to $8 million in order to settle the 2014 data-breach case related to the release of the movie “The Interview.” The news was disclosed from the paper filings in the federal court of Los Angeles. Though the company has not admitted any wrong doing or liability, but it has agreed to compensate its employees for the loss. The deal includes settlement with the current and former employees as well as the lawyers who brought the case. Sony will be paying around $2.5 million or $10,000 per person to employees for the theft losses and around $2 million or $1000 per person for the protective measures they took. It will also be paying around $3.5 million to lawyers for the legal fees and costs. The final settlement will, however, be done after the approval of Judge Gary Klausner. Employees claimed that the company’s data base was hacked during the movie release and resulted in the theft of their personal information. The hackers that call themselves as the “Guardians of Piece” broke in to the company database and spread several emails, social security numbers, important documents and other personal information in an […]

Sony Postpones Earnings Announcement, Blaming Hacking Attacks

HONG KONG — Sony said Friday that it would delay the report of its earnings for the quarter ended Dec. 31 as a result of the hacking attacks on its American film studio, Sony Pictures Entertainment. As those attacks led to public discussions about cybersecurity and geopolitics, and Hollywood’s relation with the two — and as the story moved from Sony to North Korea to the National Security Agency — it might have been easy to forget the scale of the disruption at the studio. In a filing Friday to the Financial Services Agency of Japan, the company said that after Sony Pictures shut down its entire computer network in response to the November intrusions, many crucial programs still were not running. Sony Pictures’ “financial and accounting applications and many other critical information technology applications will not be functional until early February 2015 due to the amount of destruction and disruption that occurred, and the care necessary to avoid further damage by prematurely restarting functions,” the company said in the filing. As a result, Sony is asking for an extension of a month and a half for its earnings report, though it said it would hold a call on Feb. 4 to […]

Following recent hacks against Sony, Anthem and other major corporations, the White House has moved to form a new central agency that will pool resources from existing programs in order to monitor and combat cybersecurity threats. According to the Washington Post, the Cyber Threat Intelligence Integration Center (CTIIC) is modeled after the National Counterterrorism Center, which was formed after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks to help agencies quickly share intelligence to thwart terrorism on U.S. soil. In that vein, the CTIIC will connect the dots between federal agencies that have cybersecurity departments, including the CIA, the FBI, the NSA and the Dept. of Homeland Security. Obama: ‘No Hacker Should Be Able to Shut Down Our Networks’ The Obama administration will announced the new center on Tuesday in an address by White House homeland security and counterterrorism adviser Lisa Monaco. “The cyberthreat is one of the greatest threats we face, and policymakers and operators will benefit from having a rapid source of intelligence,” Monaco told the Post. “It will help ensure that we have the same integrated, all-tools approach to the cyberthreat that we have developed to combat terrorism.” According to officials, the North Korean hack of Sony Entertainment was the […]
