Australia's new law... Edited

Ian Smith Community Leader Feb 01, 2019

Dec 6 2018 Australia passed a new law.

Telecommunications and Other Legislation Amendment (Assistance and Access) Bill 2018

"The new law requires any Australian company to build backdoors to encrypted data and communications when instructed to do so by the government, while also requiring secrecy about the existence of such surveillance capabilities from individuals and enterprise customers. "

Do any of you think your risk management teams will be concerned about it?

This is the article that caught my attention.
