Dragos, provider of cybersecurity for industrial controls systems (ICS)/operational technology (OT) environments, announced CEO and Co-founder Robert M. Lee is returning as a speaker at the World Economic Forum (WEF) Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland, for the session “Securing Critical Infrastructure.”
Cyberattacks on critical infrastructure target IT and Operational Technology (OT), impacting the range of functions those technologies support. As attacks become more sophisticated, it is imperative for the global community to treat cybersecurity risk as a systemic challenge that requires collective decision-making and coordinated action across the private sector, governments, and civil society. How can business and political leaders mobilize a collective response to safeguard critical assets and mitigate systemic damage? Lee will share his perspective during this session, directly linked to the ongoing work of the Centre for Cybersecurity of the World Economic Forum.
Also at Davos, Lee will participate in the multilateral meeting on Operational Collaboration Against Cybercrime, and help guide the dialogue around cybersecurity, cyber resilience, and digital trust during the Meeting for the Centre of Cybersecurity.
Lee is an active contributor to the World Economic Forum and returning Davos speaker. He previously spoke on Cyber Security of Critical Infrastructure at the Davos Annual Meeting 2022 during the Global Cybersecurity Outlook. Lee is a member of the WEF Cybersecurity Leadership Community and the WEF Subcommittee on Cyber Resilience for the Oil and Gas and Electricity Communities. He contributed to the WEF white paper for Cyber Resilience in the Oil and Gas Industry, “Advancing Supply Chain Security in Oil and Gas: An Industry Analysis” and published the WEF article, “Cybersecurity has much to learn from industrial safety planning.”
The World Economic Forum had previously selected Dragos as a “2020 Technology Pioneer,” an annual distinction that recognizes the 100 most innovative early to growth-stage companies from across the globe that are poised to have a significant impact on business and society. Dragos was the first industrial cybersecurity company to receive this recognition. WEF subsequently named Dragos as a Global Innovator.
