At Axenic we take staff development seriously – which is why the whole team attended the annual Kawaiicon infosec conference held on October 17th & 18th in Wellington.

My name is Camille. I’m 23 years old and I recently graduated from Victoria University of Wellington with a Bachelor of Commerce with a Major in Information Systems.
I consider myself lucky that I got a ‘job job’ (a word I define as a job in the industry you spend years at university aspiring to get) shortly after university. I consider myself luckier that I got a job at Axenic. Information Security was always an interest of mine at university and I’m happy I chose to pursue it.
The Office of the Privacy Commissioner recently implemented an incentive called the “Privacy Trust Mark”, which is an accreditation given to organisations/agencies who demonstrate excellent privacy standards for a specific product, service or process. The OPC is assessing the applications based on the 7 principles of ‘Privacy by Design’ that were created by Dr Ann Cavoukian (Information & Privacy Commissioner, Ontario, Canada). This is a brief run through in case you believe your organisation is up for the challenge.
