SECURITY

MISSION . PROFESSION . PASSION

SECURE MARITIME DOMAIN

Once upon a time, Safety and Security were two diverging concepts.  Nowadays, in a connected society where all safety & security systems are cyber-controlled, Safety and Security have become convergent concepts, truly the two sides of the same coin .. this coin has been collectively designated as "Security" and encompasses all aspects of protection, resilience, survival, and, of course, of the original terms of safety and security. One example is "Homeland Security" which deals with acts of terrorism and natural disasters alike. Another example is "Maritime Security", which deals with all human activities at sea, both on surface and subsea, in the airspace above the maritime assets, and on all related land infrastructures. With the oceans covering over 60% of the Earth´s surface and hosting 90% of the world´s commercial trade, we made Maritime Security our focus.


CABIBBE is specialized in creating international joint ventures for the advancement of sustainable maritime security. With our worldwide network of partners in the private security, renewables, military, and bleeding-edge technology sectors, we constantly develop cooperation projects aimed to boost prevention, preemption, protection, survival & resilience, and a secure lifestyle in the maritime domain.

CABIBBE is the first European Collaborative Partner of the Maritime Security Resilience Alliance, a US-based organization providing the private sector with guidance & support in aligning physical security, cyber security, cognitive security, and security education in order to operationalize security resilience in the maritime domain and in the protection of critical infrastructures.  The Alliance is headquartered at the NASA Kennedy Space Center, Florida, and works in close cooperation with the DHS, the FBI, the USCG, and the US Navy.

SUPERYACHT SECURITY

CABIBBE is the only company in the world to bring space exploration expertise into the superyacht "luxury & lifestyle" security sector.  By putting together over 25 years of experience in manned spaceflight with over 25 years of experience in defense engineering and over 25 years of experience in private security, we have developed a complete concept for the total security of yourself, of your family, of your associates, and of your cyberphysical sanctum sanctorum.  This concept encompasses:


  • the human factor & isolation psychology .. we take care of the most important elements, YOU & YOUR FAMILY, from a cyber-physical security as well as a psychological point-of-view for a positive, proactive adaptation to a secluded lifestyle; we help you with preparedness & resilience training; we evaluate your lifestyle and we carry out security audits for your whole family; our team of psychology experts coming from the manned spaceflight sector will help you and your family cope with isolation due to the pandemic restrictions; your kids will be excited to meet astronauts who will give them good advice on how to live a "remote" life; the adults will gain some insight on how isolation psychology works and what to do to prevent problems;


  • the "survival & living" factor .. surviving is important and so is living. Our technologies allow you to survive the worst of disasters, from asteroids to nuclear fallout to natural disasters to pandemics and asymmetrical warfare, while our design allows you to live in a comfortable way also in the worst of times; we implement the best space technology for food, water, and energy production: we ensure you will always have the best (tele)medical care for the whole family; we ensure your business continuity;



  • security without firearms .. once you enter national waters, you have to declare your weapons, and most likely lock them in the on-board safe or surrender them until you depart again. And normally you have to depart from the same port of arrival and at a specific time.  A security based on things that must be surrendered or that can be seized is a very bad approach. For us Security is something that nobody can take away from you, and that allows you to enter and leave any port, without notifying anybody;


  • the sea, land, air, & space domains .. we protect your yacht, your submarine, your very own "sealab", your private island, your art collection, your waterfront mansion, and all the aspects connected to your earthling life against all kinds of criminal attack and natural disasters; we retrofit your current assets or we can engineer your yacht or Doomsday Survival Ark with your favorite shipyard, your architect, and your security manager;


  • the cyber domain .. we protect your "online" life and the "online" life of your children;


  • the electromagnetic spectrum domain .. we protect your wireless communications with military-grade technologies against intrusions, hi-energy electromagnetic pulses, electronic warfare, and we guarantee your privacy against electronic eavesdropping;



  • air travel & emergency evacuation .. our many years of technical experience as aviation safety & security specialists allow us to provide you with a 360-degree protection package for all your airborne needs, from business travel to emergency evacuation.

Food Safety & Catering Security: food poisoning can be as deadly as a bomb hidden in your lobster.  Our food safety & catering security team provides you with the highest level of food safety and catering security worldwide. In particular we look after:


  • eventual health hazards at location of delivery and of fishing / harvesting;
  • constant monitoring of WHO & State authorities health warnings;
  • quality of delivered supplies;
  • supplies paperwork trail and labeling;
  • supplier compliance with health regulations;
  • proper food processing and storage;
  • raw food handling;
  • delivery security & tampering prevention;
  • goods inspection & scanning before they are loaded on-board;
  • biochem analysis for bacteria, chemicals, etc.;
  • on-board food preparation (cooking temperature, blast chilling, storage, expiration and waste management);
  • training of crew in matter of health and safety;
  • monitoring delivery personnel until they leave the pier.

RED TEAMING SECURITY

CABIBBE´s own Red Team is specialized in carrying out attacks against the Client´s assets in order to test the defense systems.


Red-teaming goes way beyond penetration testing.  While the latter is used in the initial phases, the former is meant to evaluate the defense response of mature organizations which already had penetration tests and fixed the major vulnerabilities.


Made up by the most experienced advisors from elite Israeli units, our Red Team carries out the following tests:

  • physical vulnerabilities
  • cyber vulnerabilities
  • electromagnetic vulnerabilities
  • human vulnerabilities (social engineering & "people hacking")



Our targets are:

  • first & foremost, the family as a whole
  • partners & associates
  • service suppliers
  • superyachts
  • marinas
  • offshore infrastructures
