Axenic to work with the NZ Government to improve information security

WELLINGTON – NZ, October 20, 2017– Axenic has been selected for the new ICT Security and Related Services (ICTSRS) panel to provide governance, risk and assurance services to the New Zealand Government.

Axenic was appointed to the original ICTSRS panel when it was first set up and has delivered services to a number of government agencies under that panel agreement.

Axenic has worked closely with the NZ Government Chief Information Officer (GCIO) over several years to improve NZ Agency security maturity. This has included contributing to the development of the GCIO risk management framework, the GCIO assurance framework and the Office 365 and Azure Risk Assessments. It has worked with a number of agencies to apply the frameworks across their various systems.

The inclusion of Axenic on the new ICTSRS panel enables Government Agencies to continue to engage the company for specialised information security services.

“Axenic is thrilled to be included on the ICTSRS panel once more,” says Axenic General Manager, Terry Chapman. “With ever increasing cyber-security attacks and as Agencies offer new and innovative digital citizen services, it has never been more important to make sure that NZ citizen information is protected.”

Agencies wishing to engage Axenic through the new ICTSRS panel should contact Terry Chapman on +6444998012 or terry.chapman@axenic.co.nz.
