Global industry report: The great disconnect
The state of cyber risk management in the maritime industry
In the last few years, the maritime industry has made great progress in improving its approach to cyber risk management, but significant gaps remain.
This report explores the gaps that exist between the industry’s perceptions of cyber security and reality, taking into account the views of more than 200 stakeholders from across the industry, including cyber security experts, seafarers, shoreside managers, industry suppliers, and C-suite leaders.
The research has uncovered three great disconnects that exist across the industry where expectations and reality don’t match up, cyber risk management efforts are lacking, or risks that are unique to maritime exist. These industry disconnects exist not just internally within maritime organisations, but across the maritime supply chain, and in how the industry approaches investment and risk.

What our clients say about us
“Medulla makes the asset inventory process easy... The system can infer the operating system, active services, network segment and hardware vendor of the device. This saves us time from having to perform manual investigations or do physical onboard inspections.”Max WongHead of Digital Technology Solutions
“CyberOwl's Medulla has been able to provide us visibility of cyber risks in a way that we previously struggled with. Within days of installation, their system detected risks to our onboard systems which we were able to deal with immediately to avoid any disruptions and losses.”Matthew MaherasIT Manager
“Our priority was to have the ability to constantly ensure that the security controls are actually in place and working effectively, as well as having an advanced monitoring solution that provides continuous visibility and situational awareness. Having Medulla and the CyberOwl team on your side delivers much more than this. It is like having an army of maritime cybersecurity specialists working for you to secure your fleet, something we would never be able to afford to build on our own.”Konstantinos SakellakosIT Manager
“Deploying Medulla across our fleet has allowed us to understand the cyber security implications around digitalisation and improve the cyber hygiene of our fleet. Medulla also helps us evaluate the effectiveness of our existing security controls and cyber security policies in a scalable, data-driven way.”General Manager Information Technology
“Shipboard systems are not like office systems. In order to secure the increasing number of connected onboard systems, including the connected IoT and OT systems, we needed assurance that our onboard cyber security controls are working and continuous monitoring of when they are not working as they should be. CyberOwl's Medulla gives us that visibility and ability to pinpoint the exact control that isn’t working.”Ron FongHead of Fleet IT of Pacific Carriers Limited and POSH (members of Kuok group)
We’re focused on protecting your maritime systems – so you can focus on your bottom line
Shifting you from reactive to predictive
CyberOwl builds on cutting-edge research that started its life at the Defence Academy of the United Kingdom and completed at Coventry University. We are on a mission to leverage data and analytics to shift asset operators towards an active cybersecurity posture.
We understand shipping
We have invested time engaging with over 100 owners and managers to understand their pain points. We have first hand experience leading ship managers to discover how visibility and intelligence reduces cyber risk and protects their bottom line.
Built for maritime environments
Our systems were built for technically challenging maritime environments. Where connectivity and bandwidth is a challenge, the crew have limited knowledge of cyber secure practices and yet need cyber risk management to be part of their localised safety management system.
