TYSONS CORNER, VA September 14, 2015 — Mark Testoni, president and CEO of SAP National Security Services, told Signal magazine that behavioral biometrics is becoming an important technology in today’s fight against evolving cyber intrusions, ExecutiveBiz reported Friday.

The AFCEA publication said Sept. 1 the government is now experimenting with active authentication and cognitive footprint tools to safeguard networks and the critical information that they hold, but Testoni adds legislation’s role to the picture.

“Over time, what’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, ” said Testoni, an inductee into Executive Mosaic‘s Wash100 for 2015.

“Ultimately, in a cyber world, if we’re going to slow this stuff down, we’ve got to have consequences beyond ‘we caught you.’”
