Dragos Inc. and Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories (SEL) formed a partnership to better detect and respond to threats within industrial control system (ICS) networks of the electric power industry.

The Dragos Platform integration with SEL devices provides insight into power system networks and their communications, allowing asset owners and operators to monitor for security events. The Dragos Platform also collects, aggregates and analyzes unique SEL events and logs to optimize threat detection and response efforts.

The Dragos and SEL partnership enables SEL equipment-specific investigation playbooks, which are paired with each threat behavior analytic and provide step-by-step guides to responding to threats. This allows analysts to respond effectively and efficiently against cyber incidents in power system networks, say the companies.
