Mark Testoni, president and CEO ofÂ SAPÂ National Security Services, has said the use ofÂ behavioral biometrics can help detect potentialÂ cyber threatsÂ in an interview withÂ Signal magazine published Sept. 1.
Testoni told the publication credit card companiesÂ have begun to adopt behavioral biometrics to detect threat actorsâ€™ fraudulent practices, Sandra Jontz writes.
â€œNow that itâ€™s being brought into this world [cybersecurity], itâ€™s becoming part of the defense-in-depth concept that we really need to have to secure our cyberspace.â€
â€œWeâ€™re hoping to use peopleâ€™s behavior patterns and what they do inside of the networks to help us identify potential threats.â€
Testoni told Signal heÂ considers cybersecurity â€œa big data problemâ€ that requires data infrastructures to set up robust defenses against network vulnerabilities.
He also called for the development of new laws and policies that would authorize government agencies to impose sanctions against threat actors.
â€œOver time, whatâ€™s more important than just being able to identify and shut down these bad actors is a system that will be able to punish them for doing the action.â€
