We think that the new version of NIST’s Cyber Security Framework is a significant improvement.

New Zealand organisations will still need to do some work to plug some of its idiosyncratic gaps, however.
Axenic is proud to announce our new product offering which will substantially improve security at government agencies!
Government agencies have been telling us for years that they have struggled to implement the cable colour standards in the NZISM. Hampered by the fact that they don’t own the data centres, that it is hard to discover which cables are carrying which traffic, and that many of the data centres are overseas – agencies have given up. No longer!
Take a moment to imagine a world with gender equality. No bias, no stereotypes, no discrimination. This year’s International Women’s Day focuses on encouraging people to overcome gender biases towards women. We are trying to eliminate gender bias by showing our support and encouraging diversity. We’re very fortunate that our team here at Axenic is made up of a number of passionate and experienced women who are all outstanding professionals in their field. In support and recognition of International Women’s Day this year, we would like to take the opportunity to introduce you to them.
When using devices and online services, always use modern, convenient and strong access controls. Fingerprint sensors are brilliant for controlling access to personal devices, a good password manager makes creating and remembering passwords a breeze, and adding multi-factor authentication is the best approach for protecting the accounts you really care about.
