BehavioSec appoint Chief Revenue Officer to bring behavioral biometrics to mainstream
BehavioSec has announced the addition of Dave Lapin to the company as Chief Revenue Officer to drive long-term relationships with its customers, partners and industry thought leaders.
Lapin joins BehavioSec after more than 25 years of experience in cybersecurity and enterprise technology sales, business development, and leadership, including with NCC Group Security Services, IOActive, Dell Secureworks and Cisco Systems. The company hopes to benefit from his expertise in supporting early stage technology and services companies in their transition to mainstream integration, according to the announcement.
BehavioSec says in the announcement that Lapin’s background of introducing innovative technologies to enterprises at appropriate transition points in the market is suited to accelerating its adoption in diverse industries including banking, fintech, retail, cloud services, medical and education. His expertise also includes identifying industry segment leaders, building go-to-market and support teams to scale, and assisting in product refinement to meet the needs of segment leaders that bring new technologies to the mass market.
BehavioSec sees the approval of behavioral biometrics for PSD2 compliance by the European Banking Authority last year as a major opportunity.
“For those market leaders as well as fearless challengers that are sophisticated enough to understand and deploy behavioral biometrics to improve their users’ experiences (UX), harden their authentication architectures, and pioneer significant anti-fraud controls in the next wave of cyber lead service delivery, there is a great future that will allow those pioneers to distance themselves from their traditional competition,” says Dave Lapin.
Lapin expresses optimism that BehavioSec’s proven technology, leadership team, and marquee investors position it well to address the need for enhanced security in digital transformation efforts.
“By passively watching the natural behaviors of users of services provided by companies with ‘bet the farm’ investments in Cloud and Web properties, rapidly discerning machine generated traffic, and clearly identifying bad actors earlier in the session cycles, it’s a win-win for managing fraud risk, downstream loss, and building confidence that companies are going the extra mile to ensure their customer relationships and peace-of-mind,” Lapin adds.
