Sony Pictures CEO says employees shouldn't be worried about the future

Sony Pictures CEO Michael Lynton says employees should not be afraid of studio's future, as major data breach won't bring them down

Sony Pictures Entertainment employees heard from company CEO Michael Lynton and co-chair Amy Pascal during an open town hall meeting on Monday. The company is still painfully suffering after a major data breach led to emails stolen, employee personal information leaked, and other disruptions to its business.




"This will not take us down," Lynton said during the town hall meeting in front of employees. "You should not be worried about the future of this studio."


Lynton apologized that employee personal information and medical records were stolen - and then posted online - by the cybercriminals. During the two sessions held on Monday, there were no question and answer segments for employees to ask questions to Lynton or Pascal.


The FBI and cybersecurity firm Mandiant are helping SPE investigate the significant data breach, which was originally blamed on North Korea.
