Sony's Chief Executive Officer has apologized to users of its Playstation Network, breaking his silence on one of the biggest Internet security breaches ever.

Howard Stringer's comments come after criticism of his leadership after Sony revealed hackers had compromised the data of more than 100 million accounts. Sony issued its first warning a week after it detected the problem.

Stringer says the reason for the delay was that forensic analysis is a complex, time-consuming process. He says so far there's no confirmed evidence any credit card or personal information has been misused.

Stringer promised the company will continue to monitor the situation closely. He also says Sony has launched a data theft insurance policy for its Playstation network, and Curiosity users.
