Olov Renberg is co-founder and Vice President of Stockholm’s BehavioSec which can verify a person’s identity by the way they type in a password, move a computer mouse or even swipe a smartphone. DARPA calls it continuous authentication — the system can tell if an unauthorized user is sitting at someone’s desk and typing into his computer.
BehavioSec transforms behaviour into a transparent additional layer of security by monitoring, in real-time, the way users interact with their devices. BehavioSec’s technology recognises if a conflicting user is operating a device by monitoring the environment, rhythms, and interaction patterns that are unique to each user.
With offices in the UK, Germany, the Netherlands and Sweden, BehavioSec is currently deployed across Northern Europe retail banks protecting over 1,5 billion transactions per year.
In July 2019, BehavioSec announced new behavioural biometric capabilities, including new account fraud detection and enhanced mouse recognition.
On LinkedIn, Renberg writes that the company’s investors include Forgepoint Capital, Cisco, ABN and AMRO.
Renberg earned a degree in International Business and Economics from Lulea University of Technology in 2005.
