Sony Hires Mandiant after Huge Cyber Attack

It's not been a great time for Sony over the last few years and with the recent cyber attack on the firm they have now hired in the specialists to examine how this has happened and how to mitigate in the future. 
More detail on attack - Sony Pictures was hit by a blackmailing hacker attack which enabled the attackers to shut down the IT Systems and hijack the Twitter accounts, whilst confidential documents and passwords were believed to haven been stolen. It has also been suggested that 5 unreleased Sony made films were leaked onto file-sharing websites. Amongst these titles include the Annie film, which isn't due for release until 19th December. Some speculation is being linked back to North Korea.
Sony has hired FireEye's Mandiant forensics team to clean up the damage from the recent cyber attack.
