Informatech staff are highly sought after for their unique skill set and experience working on large and complex projects. We have worked across a number of projects for various government agencies, specialising in Defence and National Security. Informatech regularly partner with prime systems integrators and provide both delivery and governance/assurance to ensure successful delivery of projects on behalf of our customers.
Next Generation Desktop and End User Compute
The Next Generation Desktop project is the largest desktop transformation undertaken in the southern hemisphere. It replaces Defence’s legacy Windows XP platform with a state-of-the-art virtual Windows 10 desktop delivered out of centralised data centres to over 100,000 users across Australia.
Informatech were engaged to act on behalf of Defence to provide governance over companies responsible for other areas of delivery including Accenture, PWC, Leidos, IBM and Fujitsu. Informatech’s responsibilities included Verification and Validation, Information Security and IT Service Management.
RAAF Posioden 8A - AIR7000 Ph2B
The acquisition of the P-8A Poseidon by the Royal Australian Air Force required Integration of United States Navy produced assets into our Australian Defence Force's Single Information Environment.
Informatech provided Validation services for both the Mission System and the Support System to ensure the capabilities of Maritime Intelligence, Surveillance and Response was realised.
Standalone Networks Remediation Program
The Standalone Networks Remediation Program (SNRP) with Defence was the end result of an audit performed by the Australian National Audit Office (ANAO) which identified some 700+ small to medium information systems operating within Defence with no PSPF/ISM status or accreditation evident.
Using our specialist expertise, Informatech re-architected the extant Defence accreditation process to support a less-onerous accreditation structure, where the virtual environments provided risk mitigations to all hosted Standalone Network tenants. We then supported the SNRP Board in gaining authority approval from the Defence ICT Security Branch to allow the project to ‘self-certify’ Standalone Networks that met a specific set of requirements, and with ICTSB consultation required on an ‘exception only’ basis.
Following this, Informatech performed verification and validation against each of the standalone networks to confirm that security treatments had been appropriately implemented and were effective
