What's New - PRINCE2® Agile

Since its formation, AXELOS has sought to engage with the user community through workshops and online surveys.

What's New - Resilia Cyber Security

As the range and complexity of cyber threats and vulnerabilities has increased, the approach to managing the associated risks has also evolved and matured. RESILIA™ is a complete, collaborative risk-based approach driven by the Board but involving everyone across the organisation and extending to partners, supply chain and customers. 


It requires moving away from strategies that seek solely to protect the business to an approach that includes preparing for, and recovering from, a cyber-attack. Our belief is cyber security is an issue for a whole organisation, from board to staff and from customers to suppliers. AXELOS' RESILIA™ best practice and certification will be aimed at everyone who has an influence on cyber resilience, including information security, IT development, product owners, customer operations and business support (including finance and risk).  

The AXELOS RESILIA™ range of tools and simulations are aimed at more specific groups including board management, information security and risk management. AXELOS RESILIA™ is aimed at all types and sizes of organisation, both in the public and private sectors.

How Is Your Role Impacted by the Cloud?


You can’t have avoided the word “cloud” in recent years nor its predominance in all of our lives, both business and personal. Cloud computing is not only a game-changer for companies, but it is also changing the nature of jobs, both in information technology departments and in other departments as well. 

“Cloud computing solutions will reduce the number of IT hardware jobs in the marketplace, increasing competition for new job seekers who lack cloud skills and expertise.”

The Shared Responsibility of Cloud Security

Although the cloud comes with great financial and technical benefits, like any other infrastructure, it also has its share of threats. 

Over the years, we have seen a rise in both attack frequency and diversity of malicious software used. With increases in cloud incidents related to vulnerability scanning, web application attacks and brute force attacks, it is crucial for you to understand the types of threats potentially targeting you on the cloud so you can build a security-in-depth strategy to defend your environment from malicious attacks. 

In Alert Logic’s Annual Cloud Security Report 2014, web application attacks, brute force attacks and vulnerability scans were the most pronounced attacks experienced in the Cloud Hosting Provider environments, each impacting over 40% of the cloud hosting base. Brute force attacks have surged, likely due to the increasing presence of “theft worthy” data in the cloud, with vulnerability scans typically coupled with brute force attacks in terms of attack style and process.
