The average cost of one cybersecurity incident in the industrial control system (ICS) and operational technology (OT) environment is $2,989,550.

The consequences of a cyber attack on the chemical industry could be severe for two reasons. First, many of the processes are capable of catastrophic failure, such as explosions, if not controlled and monitored properly. Second, any downtime is extremely expensive in terms of lost production, with costs up to millions of dollars per day And, according to a recent American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) survey, 55% of unplanned disruptions last a day or more. This problem is exacerbated in the current environment with its supply chain issues, when replacing a damaged component can take much longer than normal, often months instead of days or weeks.

Dragos’s unique approach helps our customers mitigate these and other issues by protecting the ICS and other OT systems controlling and monitoring raw material handling, production, packaging, shipping, and other operations—along with corresponding intellectual property—from cyber attacks.
