SAP NS2’s Mark Testoni: Election Security Awareness Drove Federal-State Collaboration
Mark Testoni CEO SAP NS2

Mark Testoni, CEO of SAP National Security Services, said the heightened awareness about election security fueled collaborative efforts between federal and state agencies to protect voting systems, SearchSecurity reported Thursday.

"The challenge for a perpetrator is when people become more aware," Testoni, a five-time Wash100 Award recipient, told the publication.

"Education is an important aspect to security; it's not all technology, it's behavior patterns."

The SAP NS2 executive described the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency's rumor control initiative as a great idea and commended other federal efforts to address election threats.

SearchSecurity also quoted Shawn Henry, president of CrowdStrike's services division, as saying the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security provided industry alerts on disinformation campaigns, malware and other adversarial tactics to increase their vigilance on voting infrastructure security risks.
