Sony implemented a new strategic decision plan to reduce costs in March that claimed 205 jobs, three studios and the MMOG, The Agency. The lawsuit alleges that included in the 205 individuals that were laid off were “a number” of employees in its Network Operations Center, which is responsible for preparing for and responding security breaches. The lawsuit also states that Sony spent “lavishly” on improving its own corporate network security by installing appropriate firewalls and other security measures to guard against cyber attacks but did not extend that same protection to its customers.
