“Night Dragon” emerged in 2006 and became one of the first well-known nation-state cyberattacks, affecting approximately 71 organizations worldwide. The “Night Dragon” attacks were reported by McAfee in February 2011, while David DeWalt was the CEO. McAfee led the successful investigation and response to the breach.
When we launched NightDragon, we named the firm in tribute to the attacks and the significant moment it represented in history.
Today, NightDragon seeks to close the gap between offense and defense by deploying capital and expertise towards companies providing leading solutions to better protect governments, organizations and individuals.
