Case Study


This case details the events that took place from April to June of 2011, when the PlayStation Network (PSN) servers were hacked. As a result of this incident, PSN’s servers went down and its users’ personal information was stolen. Students should analyse the facts and then present alternative plans of action, putting themselves in the shoes of the team that PlayStation delegated to handle the situation. They should also present a plan for a long-term business continuity strategy.
