FULTON, Md., Sept. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Industrial control system (ICS) cybersecurity company Dragos, Inc. announced today that it has recruited Ben Miller to lead its Threat Operations Center. In this role, Miller and his team will deliver remote and on-site threat hunting services to ICS/SCADA networks. Miller was previously the Associate Director at the Electricity Information Sharing & Analysis Center (E-ISAC) operated by North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) where he led cyber analysis for the North American bulk electric system.
"Too often security principles such as strong detection and response are absent in ICS environments," Miller said. "We are taking threat hunting and incident response tradecraft and combining it with our team's ICS experience to increase visibility and confidence in the safety and reliability of ICS environments."
"We're delighted to have Ben join the team at Dragos," added Robert M. Lee, Dragos CEO. "Dragos was formed to give companies both on-demand and persistent access to the best and most experienced talent in an industry where it is hard to find. Talent is scarce and cyber threats are becoming more pervasive, adding leaders such as Ben to the team helps us achieve and exceed our mission."
Dragos was founded by industry expert Robert M. Lee and recently closed a $1.2M seed round financing from startup studio DataTribe, with DataTribe Co-Founder Mike Janke joining the board. Janke, a former Navy Seal, was previously the founder and CEO of 7 companies including mobile security leader Silent Circle. The company also announced the appointment of nationally recognized cybersecurity domain expert, startup veteran, and venture investor Tom Bennett to the board as well.
"Dragos brings cutting edge security innovation out of the NSA and combines it with the best minds in the private sector" Janke said. "Given the fast-evolving nature of industrial cyber, Rob and Dragos are true to our mission of taking breakthrough innovation from D.C.-based government research labs and combining that vision with Silicon Valley startup know-how to create, define, and lead new market segments."
