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.
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. In case you couldn’t make it, we got together afterwards and have summarised our top 6 highlights from what was yet another superb information security event.
We’ve recently created a new section on our website for case studies. Our customers were telling us that they wanted to hear more about what we’re doing and how we help different organisations. Of course, due to the nature of our work, a lot of this information is confidential and protecting this is always our top priority. However, we are able to share some information and have developed the first of what we believe will be many case studies in collaboration with our client and partners. Our first one showcases how Axenic worked with Not For Profit organisation the Human Rights Measurement Initiative.
