Sony CEO Issues Apology over Security Breach

Stockbyte/Thinkstock(TOKYO) -- Sony's president says he's sorry for the security breach that compromised the personal information of millions of users on its PlayStation Network last month.

In a letter posted to Sony's PlayStation blog Thursday, CEO Howard Stringer said he and the company "apologize for the inconvenience and concern caused by this attack."

Stringer said Sony has launched a $1 million identity theft insurance policy to protect American users.  The company is also offering free membership and extended subscriptions related to their PlayStation system.

The PlayStation Network breach in April exposed the personal information of more than 100 million users.
