Fulton-based cybersecurity startup Dragos closed a $1.2 million seed round this week.
The money was raised from DataTribe, a “startup studio” that launched this summer in the Howard County city.
The startup was founded by CEO Robert M. Lee, Jon Lavender and Justin Cavinee, who met while working in the U.S. intelligence community, according to a press release. They established a mission that sought to identify nation-states carrying out attacks and cyber espionage against critical infrastructure, which is defined as essential systems that provide electricity, drinking water, transportation and other key functions.
Now the company is looking to help protect that infrastructure by creating a security platform for industrial control systems. The startup is looking to build the Dragos Threat Operations Center, according to the press release.
“There is a lack of visibility and insight into the cyber threats targeting infrastructure networks,” Lee said in a statement. “We aim to hunt down these threats while developing solutions to return value to infrastructure operators and owners.”-30-
