“Data is not information, information is not knowledge, knowledge is not understanding, understanding is not wisdom.”
Clifford Stoll

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.
