In this blog, we’re going to give you a quick rundown of the changes that have been made to the Privacy Act, and how they might affect you. While this isn’t an exhaustive list, it should hopefully cover the most substantial changes.
Axenic has a very special ‘breaking news’ update! We are very pleased to announce that Axenic is now a PCI QSA registered company! This is a hugely important milestone for Axenic and an important part of our next stage of business development.
Now that the media hysteria has abated on the topic of DDoS, it seems timely for us to provide some commentary on this long standing topic from the perspective of security professionals.
The recent Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks on NZX, Stuff, RNZ, and many more have had the media bombarding us with updates and semi-new information aimed to keep us, the general public informed. Reading some articles on RNZ, Stuff, and NZHerald provide similar information on the attack.
There is no denying that the threat of sophisticated cyber-attacks are real, and while raising awareness about what is currently happening is a good thing, doing so without care may not be helpful. Read More
We’ve been seeing a bit of a buzz in the technical security press about a new method of phishing that bypasses many key security controls. Using a rogue Azure app, the attacker tricks the user into granting the app permissions to access their Office 365 email account and all of the information associated with it. Patrick Gray at Risky Business has been writing and talking up a storm on this one, and we believe that he is right to do so. In fact, we thought this was interesting and scary enough to let you know so you can understand what’s going on and maybe do something to prevent it. Read More
It is official! The Axenic team has moved offices. We are excited to have settled into our new space which is now located on level 7, 44 Victoria Street Wellington. Over the last year at Axenic our team has been growing and we needed some more space. It feels like a while ago when we said farewell to the old office and packed up back on Saturday 15th February. A lot has changed since then including a stint at home for all of us during Covid-19 Level 4 and 3 restrictions. However we are happy to be back in our new space, it has 3 large meeting rooms, a decent boardroom, not to mention the central CBD location. Moving is an exciting change and sometimes we forget the importance of security when the move-in day arrives. In this blog we discuss building security and other important considerations when moving offices.
