Sony now faces several class-action lawsuits stemming from last month's hack of its computer systems. Former employees have alleged that the company failed to protect confidential data and lacked transparency when describing the scope of the breach.

The cyberattack, launched in retaliation to a Sony comedy that features reporters attempting to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, led to the release of thousands of company emails and files. U.S. officials said last week that North Korea was behind the attack.
Sony Pictures CEO Michael Lynton recently told CNN that the FBI determined the malware behind the breach would have infiltrated 90 percent of companies. He continues to maintain that Sony had placed protections on its data.
"We had absolutely sufficient cybersecurity," Lynton said.

George argued that Sony showed negligence in placing safeguards on employee information. He noted cases in which sensitive information like health-care data and Social Security numbers were put into spreadsheets with no password protection.
"I think we're going to have to examine all those levels to see if Sony's claims that cybersecurity was top notch is true," George said.
Plaintiffs in the cases seek compensation for damages caused by the data breach and protections like credit monitoring and identity theft insurance.
Sony did not immediately respond to a request for comment from CNBC.
