Turnbull Proposes Encryption Laws

Monday 17th July / presented by Jane Hebiton

Malcolm Turnbull has proposed new Internet encryption laws.

The Prime Minister says he’s ensuring the law keeps up with evolving technology.

Under the proposed laws, social media giants like Facebook and Google will be compelled to help Australian security agencies get access to encrypted messages from suspected terrorists and other criminals.

The new laws will be similar to Britain’s Investigatory Powers Act which impose an obligation on companies to cooperate with investigations.

What do they mean for you and me and other internet users?

Electronic Frontiers Australia was created to to protect and promote the civil liberties of users of computer based communications systems and of those affected by their use.

Jon Lawrence, the Executive Officer of Electronic Frontiers Australia joins us to discuss this issue.
