Hackers are breaking the systems for profit. Before, it was about intellectual curiosity and pursuit of knowledge and thrill, and now hacking is big business. - Kevin Mitnick

Grab The Axe was created with the idea that only through pro-active and direct action can we maintain an adequate defense. Make no mistake about, the barbarians are at the gate and the time to act is now. The threats of the modern world may involve new technologies and techniques, but criminals and their motivations have not changed.

The theft of data and personal security whether to the individual, the company or the country, directly effects those we care about the most. Whether it’s a direct attack on them physically or the eradication of their hard won assets, both leave the victim broken or worse.

Our firm employees some of the finest and most skilled people in the security and business world. From current and former Military, Law Enforcement, Private Security, Academia and Corporate officers, Grab The Axe has the skill set and knowledge your company needs to fight back against those who would rob you of what you have worked so hard to build.

Our team is available to assess your current security needs, contingency plans and to then offer our solutions and expertise to improve upon and ensure that you are prepared for the worst. 

From Cyber Security intrusion testing and response plans to physical security assessments and critical response plans our experts are ready to help you protect what you care about the most.
