A recent rash of data breaches is pointing to a growing trend of cybercriminals targeting video game companies. Attacks in the past few weeks include Microsoft's Xbox platform and, most recently, Sony's PlayStation Network which went down over the weekend but has since been restored.
If you think a company can just bounce back after a major security episode, you're dead wrong. For a customer to learn that his or her data has been stolen is tantamount to a breach of trust, and it's something patrons are not bound to forget. A survey carried out by SafeNet proves this.
