What makes Axenic special
When we founded Axenic in 2009, the idea was simple: provide high-quality information security and privacy advice to help and support our clients to achieve their business goals and objectives.
Using recognised frameworks, standards and methodologies to deliver consistent, repeatable, traceable and defendable advice – rather than unspecified ‘best practice’ or unsupported opinions. Delivered by experts with extensive real world experience across both the public and private sectors.
We have chosen not to sell product, partner with vendors or offer technical implementation services in order to maintain a truly independent advisory role. Hence our name Axenic [a-zen-ic], meaning pure or uncontaminated.
Our dedication to delivering quality advice – that is free from influence – is shown in the results we deliver.
Celebrating our 10 year anniversary, Axenic founders Chris and Jim share their story with our latest video.

Our services are based on recognised frameworks, standards and methodologies1 to ensure that we deliver consistent and repeatable outcomes.
We establish long-term relationships with our clients, developing institutional knowledge about their business enabling us to provide quality advice that is relevant to their specific context.
Our team has extensive real-world experience of delivering security and privacy services across both the public and private sectors.
Truly Independent Advice
We do not sell products, partner with vendors or offer technical implementation services to guarantee that we provide our clients with truly independent advice.
We use plain English to ensure our reports can be read, understood and actioned by non-technical decision makers.
