The Chertoff Group and Dragos form strategic partnership to help industrial organizations improve risk mitigation, threat detection and incident response

The Chertoff Group and Dragos, Inc. have announced the formation of an alliance that will provide a holistic approach to cybersecurity risk management for industrial organizations seeking to protect critical infrastructure environments.

The Chertoff Group is combining its policy intelligence, technology expertise and experience communicating threats to executives with Dragos' industrial control system (ICS) expertise and asset identification, threat detection and response platform.

“I believe we are filling a great void in today’s risk management landscape by giving high profile and highly targeted industrial organizations a one-stop shop for truly understanding their risk profile along with specific risk-based recommendations and actions that can be taken to improve risk mitigation, threat detection and incident response but to also trust that their investments are working,” said Michael Chertoff, executive chairman and co-founder of The Chertoff Group.

The Chertoff-Dragos joint offering addresses the full spectrum of risk management needs across industrial organizations - from a ‘bottom-up’ threat-oriented view of how attackers could target and exploit ICS systems such as communication networks, power systems, or (SCADA) systems, to a ‘top-down’ picture of the organization’s inherent risk landscape. Complementing this unique approach, the Chertoff-Dragos team can clearly communicate risk management to all levels of an organization – from C-suite leaders to first-line operators.
