This will help GE Vernova’s customers identify and mitigate potential risks before they impact operations within critical national infrastructure.

Rapid Incident Response: By combining Dragos' incident response expertise with cybersecurity offerings, critical infrastructure providers will be able to respond swiftly and effectively to minimise downtime and maintain operational continuity.

Global Threat Intelligence: Leveraging Dragos Threat Intelligence, backed by the industry’s largest team of OT cybersecurity experts, GE Vernova will be able to offer its customers visibility into adversary threats, malware, and vulnerabilities impacting industrial sectors.
