The Company 

Our mission at CyberOwl is to shift organisations towards an active security posture. Our first product, Medulla, is a passive, protective monitoring system for detecting the early signs of cyberphysical attacks on ships. 

Medulla uses a sophisticated algorithm based on Bayesian inference to systematically analyse indicators typically associated with the early stages of malicious intrusion. It is a product of 10+ years research, started in the MoD Defence Academy and completed at Coventry University. 

CyberOwl has won several accolades, was shortlisted for the Lloyds Science of Risk Prize, selected into the first GCHQ Cyber Accelerator Programme and is a founding member of the UK Government’s centre of excellence for cybersecurity innovation – the London Office for Rapid Cybersecurity Advancement (LORCA).
