Insurers refuse to cover the costs of cyber Sony

Insurers refuse to cover the costs of cyber Sony. Problems for the Sony group as a consequence of the massive attack that suffered some of their websites, they are far from over. Zurich insurance company has claimed before a judge of the U.S. should not assume the economic compensation for that Sony will face monumental failure in the security of their websites, reports El Pais.

In April, a cyberattack on the PlayStation platform put data at risk 77 million customers. Another parallel data has exposed another 30 million. The company undertook to assume the damage that may have suffered theft victims. In Zurich demand explains that more than 50 lawsuits by users open platforms Sony claiming compensation.

Sony has gone to the insurance companies to support the financial responsibilities that may arise from litigation, and the insurer has responded by saying that his contract does not cover damage from the theft of ciberatacantes.

Sony has rolled out a welcome program to reward users of the problems encountered in the platform. A program based on the gift of games and one or two months free subscription
