As someone else said, I'm sure there were a few IT people saying security was shit. They kept putting in requests to tighten it properly and they were told that Mr XYZ director and his dept need instant access ( read: no annoying passwords ) to information on all shared drives in the network. The IT managers are too shit scared to ask the IT honcho to let me enforce the techie recommendations for fear of the IT head honcho. So they simply slide the recommendations into a drawer and forget about it, telling the techies that it's "being discussed at the next meeting".
Tick, tick, tick...BOOM! All hell breaks lose the second this GOP lot get into the network.
The interesting thing is that nobody noticed TBs of movie data going out the door because SONY being a media company they probably bother to monitor data transfers over a certain size....or was it that IT bods said "You know we should monitor the network transfers for odd amounts of data transfer to remote sites that have not been put on a whitelist.".
To which the reply would have been, "Get back under your stone your annoying IT types with your crap about security, no one cares and if you try to put any in and Mr XYZ director has to type anything into a password box you lot will be for the high jump! Do you understand?!"
So I guess that right now there are a lot of IT bods in SONY racking up shit loads of overtime with a smug smile on their faces!
