Washington, D.C. – Dragos, Inc., a global leader in cybersecurity for industrial controls systems (ICS)/operational technology (OT) environments, today announced that it has joined the Manufacturing Leadership Council, a division of the National Association of Manufacturers, as its first cybersecurity member. Dragos will bring manufacturing OT cybersecurity expertise—including monitoring, OT asset visibility and vulnerability management and threat analytics—to the broader NAM community.
As a member of the MLC, Dragos will partner with the nation’s foremost executive leadership organization to educate, protect and enable manufacturers to drive transformational growth in their companies at every stage of their digital journey to Manufacturing 4.0. The industry knowledge Dragos brings to the manufacturing cybersecurity environment will help MLC and NAM members accelerate secure adoption of Manufacturing 4.0 for their organizations.
“Dragos joined the MLC because they are at the forefront of helping manufacturers grow and implement the newest technologies. The manufacturing leaders of today require the expertise of companies like Dragos to better understand and address the growth and exposure to cyberthreats,” said Dragos Vice President of Marketing Peter Vescuso. “Dragos will help the MLC and NAM members better understand the need for better ICS/OT cybersecurity as manufacturing systems are increasingly connected.”
“We are excited to welcome Dragos to the MLC,” said David R. Brousell, vice president and executive director of the Manufacturing Leadership Council. “As a leader in ICS/OT cybersecurity, they fill a critical void for our members in understanding and implementing Manufacturing 4.0. technologies in their businesses. The Dragos mission to safeguard civilization hits home, and their experience will add to the value of the MLC for all of our members.”
