    Nova Systems Information and Cyber Security Program brings together a capability of highly qualified professionals that have acquired specialised knowledge to support organisations in achieving their Mission Assurance objectives. Nova implements cyber mission assurance through a risk management framework that is based on the Australian Department of Defence – Information Security Manual methodology. The methodology is best practice in mitigating or minimising the threat to ICT systems. However, there is no one–size–fits–all approach to Cyber security due to the varying complexity of different ICT systems. Nova adopts a risk management approach to Cyber security providing the flexibility to allow for differences in environment, business operating strategy and the businesses appetite for risk. The approach allows businesses to balance the operational and economic costs of information security measures with the need to protect the information and systems that support their organisational functions.

    Space sector capabilities

    Nova Systems acquired Auspace in 2005 from EADS Astrium. This acquisition combined with Nova’s extensive Woomera launch test and trials capability has resulted in Nova establishing a leading Australian space capability.
