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.
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:

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:
