TYSONS CORNER, VA July 28, 2015 — Mark Testoni, president and CEO of SAP National Security Services, believes the U.S. government should manage cyberspace like it would a physical battlefield, ExecutiveBiz reported Monday.
He noted in a Defense Systems interview posted Thursday that there are similarities in espionage methods used to launch hack attacks online and those employed by spies in the real world.
“We have to go on the attack and punish those that are trying to get on the inside, ” Testoni was quoted as saying.
“Whether you’re a state actor, you’re some sort of a non-state actor affiliation… if you come after us, you’re going to pay a price – much like if you were to attack our military overseas or our homeland.”
