Because there is nothing more precious than the bond between mankind and its love of video games.

Sony (NYSE: SNE) is determined to prevent its hugely popular PlayStation Network from getting hacked again. The company is so determined, in fact, that it has hired a former official at the Department of Homeland Security.

According to Reuters (via SlashGear), Philip Reitinger, the former director of the U.S. National Cyber Security Center, will take on a new role as the senior VP. Sony says that Reitinger will report to general counsel Nicole Seligman.

“Certainly the network issue was a catalyst for the appointment,” a Sony spokesman told Reuters. “We are looking to bolster our network security even further.”
