Mark Testoni, president and CEO of SAP National Security Services, hasÂ said he believes public sector agencies can mitigate ransomware attacks throughÂ innovation, education and collaboration with companies.
Testoni wrote in a guest post published Tuesday on GCN that data fromÂ human sources and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance systems mustÂ be incorporated in real time to help prevent ransomware events.
He added that agencies should integrate human analysis andÂ insights from artificial intelligence to analyze all potential threats.
“Because they test and deploy new technologies important to national security, commercial enterprises are on the front lines of a modern-day defense strategy,” Testoni noted.
The SAP NS2 CEO said private entities should collaborate with agenciesÂ to secure the government’s critical networks.
Government officialsÂ should alsoÂ fosterÂ personnel training and policy enforcement to boostÂ security, Testoni noted.
He suggestedÂ ransomware victimsÂ can cooperate withÂ the FBI to help bring backÂ functionality andÂ detect the source of attacks.
