By now, it's no secret that Sony sucks at cybersecurity. The company's movie business, Sony Pictures Entertainment, was recently hit with what may end up being the biggest corporate hack in history. It's not the first time Sony has laid claim to that title. And if history is any guide, it likely won't be the last.
You can trace Sony's unfortunate series of hacker run-ins all the way back to 2005. And when you do, you can see that it's not just that the company is bad at defending itself—its IT department has made alarmingly bad choices; it is also good at inviting trouble.
