Community Defense Program

Dragos Community Defense Program

Free access to Dragos OT cybersecurity technology for qualifying utility providers to better protect their communities from potentially destructive cyber attacks.

What Is the Dragos Community Defense Program?

We realize that small utilities and cooperatives don’t have the resources for OT cybersecurity – but it’s really important. That’s why we built the Community Defense Program (CDP). 

The CDP provides US-based water, electric, and natural gas providers with less than $100M in annual revenue free access to Dragos Platform software.  These tools can help improve their security postures and reduce OT risk. 

Key criteria to qualify for the Community Defense Program: 

  • US-based water, electric, and/or natural gas utility 
  • Must not be owned by a parent company that exceeds $100 Million in revenue.


To install and support the technology provided, you must purchase or have access to the following: 


  • Hardware required to run the software. See Dragos Platform Datasheet. 
  • Internet connectivity to enable communications to OT Watch and Neighborhood Keeper. 
  • Skills to implement the technology in your industrial environment 


Once approved for the program, we provide the support needed to guide you through setting up and configuring your network environments to support our products and solutions. 

Complete the application for the Community Defense Program. Once approved, you’ll also become a member of Dragos OTCERT which will help you with free resources and a community of other small and medium organizations to help build your OT cybersecurity capabilities.
