Nova Systems gold sponsor 2019 0xCC conference!
Apr 24, 2019
Nova Systems is a gold sponsor for the 2019 0xCC conference!
Taking place on the 26 and 27 April 2019 in Melbourne, 0xCC is an infosec, cyber security training conference for women by women.
0xCC is a free technical training conference designed to encourage and support women in the industry as well as those looking to join by providing an opportunity to upskill, build networks and to create a space for open dialogue.
In 2017, a study showed that women only make up 11% of the Cyber security workforce. 0xCC strongly believes the best way to help diversify in the industry is to build skills and create a place for discussion so everyone can come out with a more well-rounded perspective around issues and information security.
The event enables free training courses for 130 attendees, with sponsorship money going towards venue costs and travel grants allowing attendees to access the training who would otherwise be unable to afford travel and accommodation in Melbourne.
Importantly, while it’s a women-only conference, the organisers have gone to great lengths to ensure it’s not viewed as exclusionary and it’s being run to address one of the critical issues facing information security as a whole – the pipeline of skilled, qualified and enthusiastic people into the industry.

SmartSat CRC set to propel Australia into the global space industry
Apr 15, 2019
Today, the Federal Minister for Industry, Science and Technology Karen Andrews announced the success of the SmartSat Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) proposal led by The University of South Australia and Nova Systems.
Positioned to propel Australia into the global space industry, the SmartSat CRC initiative is a collaborative research and development effort, providing significant opportunities for the Australian Space industry.
The centre has 74 participants contributing $167 million adding to the federal government’s $55 million spend.
Focusing on advanced satellite communications, connectivity and earth observation, the centre will be based in Adelaide, Australia’s “Space City” alongside the Australian Space Agency and will cement Australia as a future leader in the global space industry.
In sharing the news, Chief Executive Nova Systems ANZ, Mr Steven Robinson highlighted the significant impact the CRC would have in Australia, building sovereign space capability, creating business and employment opportunities, driving innovation, and strengthening the economy.
“It is exciting to be at the forefront of an Australian Space industry milestone. We have already seen overwhelming support and collaboration for the CRC from industry leaders and world-renowned research organisations.”
“The CRC is another step towards the enhancement of the capability and competitiveness of the Australian space sector, providing an opportunity for the next generation of space companies and technologies.”
Mr Robinson also recognised Australia’s growing space industry as an inspiration for young Australians to pursue a career in STEM, an area Nova Systems is deeply committed to through their delivery of specialist capability training.
The Australian Space Agency’s goal of creating a $12 billion Australian space industry, generating an extra 20,000 jobs by 2030, is in reach with the largest R&D investment into Australia’s space industry to date.
Nova Systems signed a Statement of Strategic Intent with the Australian Space Agency in December 2018. The statement demonstrates Nova Systems commitment to the Australian Space industry and development of sovereign space-based capabilities.
In support of their commitment, Nova Systems recently obtained Spectrum licences for a range of frequencies within the satellite spectrum from the Australian Communication and Media Authority. The licences are set to bolster the Australian space economy by supporting satellite users in several innovative ways.
The SmartSat CRC will ensure Australia can execute a technological leap-frog to deliver smart satellite systems that are Australian designed, owned and operated and that will deliver the nation real-time connectivity, surveillance and sensing capability over land and sea, earth observation data to monitor climate and development, and the power to drive industry innovation and the growth of the Internet of Things.
Nova Systems is an Australian owned and operated Global Professional Service Provider, specialising in the provision of technology enabling solutions and world class expertise to deliver complex capabilities and systems and solve technologically challenging problems.
