A cyber attack can be devastating, resulting in major losses to a company’s finances and reputation. But a cyber attack against critical infrastructure can also be deadly. Think about what could happen if hackers took control of a chemical plant, grabbed a hold of a nuclear power station, shut down the electrical grid or contaminated an area’s water supply. That’s where Maryland-based cybersecurity startup Dragos finds its niche.
Founded by former employees of the National Security Agency (NSA), Dragos focuses on protecting industrial control systems (ICS), which form the beating heart of infrastructure that millions of people depend on. Matt Cowell, director of product marketing at Dragos, spoke to RewardExpert about how the company can help keep businesses and the public safe.
