TYSONS CORNER, VA, January 14, 2020 — SAP National Security Services CEO Mark Testoni said that government or commercial organizations that support many constituents or customers are potential targets if Iran perpetrates a cyber attack against the U.S. amid tensions between the two countries, ExecutiveBiz reported Thursday.

Fox Business reported Wednesday Testoni, a 2019 Wash100 winner, urged companies to install modern technical platforms, analytics technology and firewalls to thwart cyber threats.

He noted that a possible motivation of an Iran-backed attack is to undermine trust in entities within the public or private sector.

"This is the first time this issue has been brought up to the surface in a long time … I'm glad there's an awareness because we need to educate people and be better prepared about cyberattacks," Testoni added.

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency released a document last week stating that Iran has a “history of leveraging cyber and physical tactics.” CISA recommended that organizations train personnel, implement emergency procedures and back up important data.
