Sony is a Likely Bellwether for 2015

"It is stating the obvious but Sony had more than a movie hacked. And, next week when the media moves to the next shiny object the ripples will have just begun to spread." Gerry Crispin

Here's what our good friend, Gerry Crispin, recently posted on the LinkedIn HR Technology Group regarding the recent Sony Pictures debacle:

Personal contact information, compensation, etc.- HR information was stolen and made available in interesting ways. I don't know the details and it certainly wasn't the first time but, I'm betting:

- Several hundred if not thousands of CEOs are right now having someone do a vulnerability assessment...and they aren't too concerned about that someone's vacation or holiday being interrupted.

- Very soon the people inside will be making requests for additional help.

- Very soon the consultants brought in on an expedited project basis (read top price) will be suggesting that fixes be made of old technology and new technology paid for and installed on an priority basis. They will also recommend additional experts be hired, audits planned for and risks accounted for by insurance.

- Reqs for professionals with significant SKEs (subject knowledge enhancement) related to security technologies will be opened and sourcers will be going to work under heavier than normal pressure...

- Training budgets related to security cut in the last few years will be reinstated - HR will be doing extra duty counter offering the few experts they have and want to keep and coming up with special perks in advance...if they are smart.

- oh and sometime by mid-January (if not already) there are going to be a lot of conference calls from inside firms to their technology 'partners' to get up to speed on their security and privacy practices.

Here's what WSJ Reporter Clint Boulton wrote December 22, 2014:

"Sony Corporation of America, whose film studio is recovering from a crippling hack, is seeking to hire cybersecurity managers to handle the political fallout from hack attacks and assess vulnerabilities. Filling those roles could be challenging given the cybersecurity talent shortage, say tech experts."

"On Friday, Sony posted an opening for a director of vulnerability management engineering, an experienced leader who can coordinate efforts for penetration testing, system and application vulnerability management, as well as overall technical risk assessments. Sony is also looking for analysts for security, policy and risk management, and security risk and compliance functions."

In this Big Picture Channel Podcast, Gerry and I discuss the continuing fallout from the Sony attack, and the effects this will have on HR and recruiting leaders in the very near future.
