Diamond is focused on driving innovation and demonstrating thought leadership in the offshore industry to improve efficiency and lower the total cost of deepwater drilling.

Diamond’s innovations include the offshore industry’s first application of industrial blockchain technology —Blockchain Drilling™ service drives efficiencies and enables oil and gas operators to reduce their total cost of ownership.

Diamond Offshore is uncompromisingly focused on safety and security - even in the face of quick, client-driven deadlines. When they needed to evaluate the cyber risks of their offshore drilling rig fleet, they needed a way to automate the assessment-to-remediation process throughout their fleet and supply chain.


  • Client-driven requirements deadline to demonstrate cyber risk assessment program for both Rig fleet and OT supply chain vendors
  • Limited resources to scale the assessment program
  • Require historical chain of custody for data audit retention and change management for remediation
  • No single collaborative repository for management of assessment program




Offshore facilities operate with an uncompromising safety culture. As a part of a concerted effort to ensure the safety of crew and assets, Diamond Offshore needed to evaluate the effectiveness of their offshore drilling rig fleet in an effective and efficient manner. In order to meet their client-driven deadlines, they needed to automate the assessment-to-remediation process across the entire supply chain. The SecurityGate platform exceeded their requirements and scaled the process across their fleet resulting in their ability to meet their client-driven deadlines.


"Typically, our approach was to manage the cybersecurity risk assessment, audit, validation, and remediation process with spreadsheets and many meetings. Today, by managing the process on the SecurityGate platform, we are able to assess cybersecurity across our global fleet of ships and vendors more efficiently and effectively. Due to the detailed and consistent reporting capabilities, we are able to showcase our compliance on a global basis and lower our cybersecurity insurance rate"
