“How does driving a 1,300km journey during the COVID-19 lockdown relate to PCI compliance?” I hear you say…
As those of you who know me, or have seen me present will know, I love a good metaphor.
Over Easter weekend I had the somewhat surreal experience of driving the 1,300km journey from home to Auckland International Airport and back again during New Zealand’s level 4 COVID-19 lockdown. On the trip home I was reflecting and couldn’t help thinking about the similarities between the lockdown, making this a safe compliant trip and PCI DSS compliance.
There is no shortage of tips, blogs, etc being published at the moment that are offering well-meaning advice for working from home. We like to think a bit differently here at Axenic and the following blog post from Axenic Senior Consultant Tory Young is not another one of those. Instead Tory has generously shared his experiences of working from home over the years and some of the more creative ways he has kept his sanity, productivity and most importantly – his work-life balance while working from home.
In response to the current COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak, many New Zealanders are figuring out how to effectively work from home. However, we know this will cause some security challenges for many businesses and individuals, so we have prepared some handy tips to help make your home safer and better protected from cybersecurity threats.
At Axenic we are proud to have been able to support and donate to the Karunai Illam Trust for several years now. Axenic’s association originally started with Axenic staff Jim Shaw and Jo Coffey supporting the children’s home in India with both time and money. Over the years Axenic’s support has included a photographic exhibition at The Mahara Gallery in Waikanae and the “cleaning” and donation of much-needed laptops to the Trust. Our most recent support has gone towards furnishing the boys’ hostel within the new Illam complex where the children live outside the school day.
A new decade is always something to celebrate. We can now look back on our twen’teens with nostalgia, and talk about all the security threats of the past years. Nation-state attackers, critical infrastructure attacks, fiery banking trojans and the rise of ransomware.
But enough about these threats of the past. Instead, this blog will discuss some of the new-school threats that may surface now that we are in the roaring twenties.
