The Chertoff Group works with a small set of trusted, best-in-class partners to offer technical services that complement our core offerings.


The unique architectures and protocols of Industrial Control System (ICS) networks and the developing state of ICS cybersecurity pose new challenges for many asset owners, confronting them with an unclear threat landscape and a shortage of ICS/Operational Technology (OT) security expertise. Our partner Dragos includes industrial security practitioners from the U.S. government cyber teams and around the private sector who provide boots-on-the-ground experience to industrial responders to help them effectively prepare for, contain and remediate potential ICS compromises.

“As we usher in 21st century transportation solutions represented by high speed rail, we believe that the safety of our future passengers is paramount,” said Chertoff Group-Dragos customer Lori Willox, Chief Financial Officer of Texas Central Railway. “We are excited about the Chertoff – Dragos partnership that helps us ensure best-in-class safety and security in our systems through a converged OT/IT cyber risk management assessment.”


Automated validation tools are now available that can run threat tactic-specific diagnostics on an organization’s technology stack. For The Chertoff Group Cyber Risk Diagnostic tool, we work with AttackIQ, using its automated “controls assurance” testing platform, which contains a vast library of mini-testing scripts aligned to a comprehensive knowledge-based of threat actor tactics, techniques and procedures developed by leading U.S. research and development organization MITRE (the MITRE ATT&CKTM framework).

“We have worked with The Chertoff Group for over a year in developing their Cyber Risk Diagnostic, and have used the approach as a proof of concept with multiple customers, receiving overwhelming strong, positive feedback. It is our belief that this solution is a true game-changer in the security industry, providing customers with an unmatched assessment of control effectiveness, targeted training and meaningful security investment justification. ”
