Partnering to Secure Industrial InfrastructureDawn Cappelli on the Mission of the New Dragos OT-CERT Initiative
Former CISO of Rockwell Automation Dawn Cappelli is now the director of the the new Dragos OT-CERT, a cybersecurity resource designed to help industrial asset owners and operators build their OT cybersecurity programs, improve their security postures and reduce OT risk.
Cappelli says the OT-CERT aims to address a serious gap in securing industrial infrastructure: the lack of OT-specific resources readily available to the industrial infrastructure community.
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2022, Cappelli discusses:
- The mission of the Dragos OT-CERT;
- The threats and vulnerabilities the OT-CERT aims to respond to and mitigate;
- The role partnerships will play and the partners involved in the initiative.
Cappelli is responsible for launching and leading Dragos's OT Cyber Emergency Readiness Team, or CERT, a community resource center that is available exclusively for industrial asset owners and operators. Prior to Dragos, Cappelli served as vice president and CISO at Rockwell Automation.
