Sony Music Executives Possibly Preparing for Hack

While Sony Pictures was the main target of the hacking that occurred back in December, Sony Music Executives are stressing because they feel that their emails may be the next target.

While the music executives who have signed artists like, Beyoncé, David Bowie, Barbra Streisand, Adele and Bruce Springsteen, are worried about their emails detailing artists, contracts, live performance riders, and other confidential information, including a “secret project,” which may reveal the selling of divisions in Sony Music, could be released to the public.

Sony/ATV. Lynton and Sony/ATV head Martin Bandier have both denied Sony Music is for sale, but Page Six has allegedly reported that Lynton has called numerous department heads. It is unclear what they have to hide, but, “Lynton called a number of department heads within Sony, including Marty and [Sony Music CEO] Doug Morris to give a blanket apology in advance for whatever else comes out,” a source told Page Six.

The artist’s personal emails may also be attacked because of communication between the two parties. Sony has denied the reports made by Page Six to Business Insider, and have so far given no comment about the issue.

It is unaware if the “Guardians of Peace,” the group who was behind the hacking in December will actually follow through with the hacking of Sony Music, but it appears that there is a strong reason to believe that there may e a problem. This could potentially lead to a string of events that could undo privacy that business and corporations like Sony has set up. If they know that people can access their email and files, then there may not be much more that they can do to protect that information.
