Axenic ISO 27001 PCI DSS credentials


There’s no shortage of consultants who claim to understand information security and privacy. But – as Clifford points out – knowledge and wisdom are not one and the same.

Axenic is an independent information security and privacy consultancy specialising in governance, risk and assurance. We combine state-of-the-art frameworks, standards and methodologies with our team’s knowledge and experience to deliver client projects. Clients find this level of technical ability reassuring, but the real value is our depth of real-world experience that few, if any, competitors can match.

The combination of independence, knowledge and deep experience builds real wisdom. It enables our clients to collect and store information responsibly, while giving them the confidence and ability to put their information to highly effective, high value use.

Wisdom – it’s a real game-changer.

Axenic - Proudly ISO 27001 Certified

We are extremely proud that we have achieved the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification and we don't underestimate what a huge accomplishment this is for our business and importantly - our customers. Check out what is involved in the ISO Certification process as we share our journey in our blog series here.
