Established in 1995 as an aerospace operations contractor, CABIBBE | MARITIME SECURITY ADVISORS is today a boutique consulting company providing an holistic novel approach to maritime security, and private security in general, by integrating aeronautics, defense & space technologies, planetary exploration know-how, security science, geopolitical intelligence, human factors engineering, psychology, and education.

Security is neither a service nor a product, but rather it is a cross-disciplinary strategy whereby processes and systems are designed to reduce vulnerabilities of the human domain by effectively and efficiently protecting the air, land, sea, space, cyberspace, and electromagnetic spectrum domains.

Our Philosophy: the best security strategy is to make any attack against your assets too inconvenient, too difficult, too dangerous, and too expensive to carry out.

Our Uniqueness: we have a cumulative 100+ years of experience in aerospace & defense engineering, energy security, healthcare consulting and in operations in hostile & frontier markets, we have an exceptional expertise in technology transfer, we have a strong military & security background, we invest in distruptive innovations, we have a strong Law Of The Sea & Space Law team, we have a second-to-none standards & directives advisory team, and, above all, we are passionate about security and we make security a very cool aspect of our lives and of the lives of our families.




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, 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 sanctorumWe called it LUXURY ARMORS

LUXURY ARMORS encompasses:

  • the human factor .. 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;

  • the "survival & living" factor .. surviving is important but 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;

  • the sea, land, air, & space domains .. we protect your yacht, your submarine, your very own "sealab", your private island, your art collection, 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 you privacy against electronic eavesdropping.

Food Safety & Catering Security: food poisoning can be as deadly as a bomb hidden in your lobster. 

Italy is famous not only for its delicious cuisine, but also for its stringent controls on food quality & safety, the strictiest in the EU and probably in the world. In fact, the NAS Group of the Italian military police CARABINIERI is among the world ' s top expert in food control.

Our food safety & catering security team, all coming from the NAS Groups, 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.

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.  Terrible security strategy !!

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.

Psychology of Isolation: 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.

Survival & Self-Sufficiency: you might not be able to go to a chosen port for a myriad of reasons.  Our technologies will keep you self-sufficient at sea with respect to water, food, fuel, and energy.

Private Aviation Security: 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.


Profiting from its 25+ years of experience in remote environments and from its strategic locations in the Mediterranean, CABIBBE provides a unique suite of early threat detection & management solutions for the offshore industry, both for surface and subsea applications.

We also provide a total protection of the personnel on-board and during the transfers to ports or other vessels.


CABIBBEยดs own Red Team is specialized in carrying out attacks against the Clientยดs 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
