Cybersecurity in High Demand by the European Union

Border security is an ongoing controversy in Europe due to increased migrants and the U.K. vote to exit the European Union.

Inder Singh, Chief Marketing and Strategy Officer of Unisys, believes there is a demand in Europe for the technology systems that are used in the U.S.

“[That is] the trend we saw happening over the last six months, even before Brexit happened. So we started talking to the E.U. about securing the E.U. border,” Singh said on CNBC’s “Squawk Box” on Wednesday.

He believes that those involved in the migration discussion need to “think about more borders being created within the European union with Brexit.” At the moment, the U.S. and the E.U. are in the middle of negotiating a privacy shield for greater transatlantic information and data sharing.

“With Brexit, probably something similar has to be put in place between the U.K. and the European Union,” Singh noted. “Securing physical boundaries by using analytics, biometrics, vascular recognition, those are the types of solutions that we’re offering.”

The technology is not to profile, says Singh, but to “look at [security] from a behavioral standpoint,” meaning to analyze behavior in context of the question: “what are the things you might do based on that behavior?”
