We've seen everything from port scans to nation states coming after our clients. The threat is real and it's not going away any time soon...As we further embrace digital transformation, connecting operational technology to the enterprise network and cloud, the problem is only going to get worse without appropriate remedial actions.”

- David Drescher, Mission Secure CEO


Founded on a mission to prepare for and protect against cyber attacks, MSi is at the forefront of securing the nation’s most critical infrastructures including defense, energy and transportation. “McKinsey released a report last month noting nearly 6 in 10 surveyed heavy industrial organizations had a breach in their industrial control (ICS) or supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems," states David Drescher, Mission Secure CEO. “We've seen everything from port scans to nation states coming after our clients. The threat is real and it's not going away any time soon. It's actually the opposite. As we further embrace digital transformation, connecting operational technology to the enterprise network and cloud, the problem is only going to get worse without appropriate remedial actions.”

As referenced in the McKinsey report, top executives and organizations are rethinking their cybersecurity strategy. They're asking new important questions and, similar to Mission Secure's Start-up of the Year Award, "some are taking advantage of new security tools for OT offered by innovative start-ups."
